Peel the potatoes and cut them into smaller pieces so that they cook faster in the salted water. Drain them and mash them with milk. If you want to make it smoother, use a whisk or an immersion blender. Next, spray a heated frying pan with oil spray, and fry the finely chopped onion in it. Add the meat and sauté until it loses its pink colour. Next, add the ketchup and the zucchini cut into smaller pieces. Season with salt and spices and cover with water. Let them simmer together for about fifteen minutes.
