Curried Zucchini Soup with Capsicum & Potato

The family loved loved this zucchini soup when I made it with flavorful spices, peppers and potatoes. Rani even requested a few times that I make this soup again. I told her I’ll make it as many times as she wants when we receive our giant zucchini from Karen Aunty’s veggie garden 😃.
