** Important **

The mixed spices used here are the traditional '7 spices' you can buy off the shelf.

Hollow out courgettes. Wash and drain. Mix the stuffing ingredients together. Stuff each courgette to 3/4 full. Arrange in a deep pot and add the sauce ingredients. Bring to the boil. Cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours or until courgettes are cooked and sauce has thickened. Serve hot.
