ZUCCHINI WITH A SPICY SAUCE

Dishes made with zucchini (also called courgette) are popular in Georgia. There are many variations and in this family recipe we show how to make fried zucchini with a spicy sauce flavored with Ajika (Georgian: აჯიკა). Ajika is a hot, spicy paste used to flavor food mainly in Samegrelo and Abkhazia. Made, with hot red peppers, garlic, herbs and spices it resembles Italian red pesto.

Zucchini with a Spicy Sauce

Ingredients: 2 large Zucchini, 4-5 cloves of garlic, 30 grams of fresh green coriander, 200 grams of mayonnaise, 1 tbs of ajika (recipe here), 1 tsp of hot red pepper, 7-8 tbs of oil, and salt (not too much as ajika is quite salty).

Preparation: Slice the zucchini (at least 1 cm thick) and add the slices to a pan containing oil (depending on the size of pan used it may be necessary to repeat the process). Sprinkle the zucchini slices with hot red pepper. Cover and fry on a medium heat. When one side is done, turn over and continue to fry (uncovered) until cooked. Repeat until of all the zucchini slices have been fried.
