Probably tasty..I 've used a rather identical spice/tomato mix on chicken, and yum! I like the use of courgettes as I love them but never knew much what to do with them.

A tasty, quick, easy, healthy week-night meal = A winner! :) We used canned tomatoes & still added the water just to make sure it was saucy enough for us. Thanks for sharing. :)

It turned out absolutely delicious. I would recommend eating this dish with Indian chappatis and fresh plain yoghurt.
