I never knew the existence of zucchini (also known as squash or courgette) until I had DD1 (that was about 8 years ago). While googling for some toddler recipes, I came across this interesting ingredient - zucchini, and decided to hunt it down in Singapore. After visiting several supermarkets, I finally found it. When I first cooked this in DD1's porridge, I fell in love with it. From that moment, I've been cooking zucchini often.
To me, I feel that zucchini is a very western food as they are mainly cooked/baked in bread, cakes, casseroles, stuffed recipes, soups etc... I decided to cook zucchini the Chinese way, which is just stir fry.
