This is yet another simple yet tasty curry, anyone can make this, and zucchini being a vegetable that cooks faster and can be easily chopped, it's one of my favorite curry too. It goes very well with rotis, can use it as a filling for a sandwich or even as a side dish with rice and dal..
Need To Have
- Zucchinis - 6 medium ones
- Chilly Powder - 1 teaspoon
- Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
- Mustard Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
- Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
- Asafoetida - 1/4 teaspoon
- Curry Leaves - 5 to 10 leaves
Chop the zucchini into 1" cubes. Heat some oil, add the mustard and cumin seeds, when they start spluttering, remove the pan from the stove and add the asafoetida, turmeric and chilli powder, give it a mix. Put it back on the stove and add the curry leaves and the zucchini. Mix well, cover and cook for 3 mins on medium heat. Then remove the lid and cook it on high for few more minutes till almost dry.
Remove the pan from the stove when you add the powders or reduce the heat, you don't want to burn the powders.
You can also add 1/2 teaspoon of coriander powder and 1/4 teaspoon of cumin powder for more flavor.
Don't overcook the vegetable, it will become a mushy mess.
