Keema Curry with Summer Squash and Chickpeas

There is something about curry that gets my appetite going. I’ve been avoiding cooking on the stove top to get away from the heat and have been eating pasta salads, cold noodles and bean salads but sometimes you just crave eating something hot and spicy in the thick of summer!
