Zucchini - a smooth cylindrical usually dark green/yellow summer squash which is very common in the Western countries has started to get popular in Singapore too. You can easily get them in the wet markets and supermarkets. We love it very much and Aunt almost cooked this vegetables dish every other week. Sometimes I like to add some in my kimchi soup too. We had this again last night so this was how my Aunt cooked it. Very simple stir fry dish but just remember not to overcook the zucchini.
