Last month we went for the local farm visit for fruits and vegetable picking. I got fresh, good bunch of zucchini during that time. I made use of it for making the Indian style fritters and still I left with few. I used them for making this delicious zucchini bread from here . This recipe calls very simple ingredients that are available in every household.

I used home made yogurt for making this bread. It has to be very thick and do not compromise on it. I have added vegetable oil and one can substitute it with any flavorless oil and make sure to all the ingredients are in room temperature.
