  1. Kalpana, I will try your zucchini soup version one of these days since it looks delicious! Instead of adding milk, I add a sautéed potato
    which gives body to the soup. As always thanks for posting the recipe . 🍵 Devi

  2. Try it and let me know, The only thing is I find some zucchini skin can be bitter so taste it before using, and if the skin is bitter peel the skin and then use it.
