If you feel like a real vegetarian treat, this recipe is worth the time and effort. It's definitely not low calorie or low fat, but for a special occasion or dinner party, I have made it many times with rave reviews. This is from one of Madhur Jaffrey's books (World of the East Vegetarian cooking), with a few alterations. She mentions that in India they would use a more traditional long green squash, however since that's more uncommon in North America, the recipe calls for zucchini instead. I like more of the 'meatballs' than the recipe gives, so in the past I have doubled that part. Prep time may not be exact, however it does include the 1/2 hour when the zucchini sits. You can partially prepare ahead of time, see note below. Hope you enjoy!!
