Chop the garlic coarsely. Add half the onions and garlic to the bottom of the glass baking tray. Then add the sliced zucchinis. Repeat this process until the ingredients run out. Add the remaining garlic and onions on top.
Add 5 tablespoons of olive oil, 1,5 teaspoons of salt, 1 teaspoon of black pepper and red pepper flakes to a bowl and mix. Pour the mixture over the zucchinis. Finally, sprinkle the flour on the pumpkins and bake them in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Mince a clove of garlic with salt. Add the yoghurt, add some water and mix well. Add the remaining olive oil and butter to a pan. Add chili pepper, mint and black pepper and heat. You can eat the zucchinis straight out of the oven, or you can add yoghurt and mint sauce on them and consume them.
