Zucchini Stir Fry and Rice


My Hus fell in love with Zucchini when he had them recently in an Iftar Party here organized by his colleagues. He said, “I had more Zucchini than Chicken”. It was surprise to me as Chicken is his all time favorite. He asked me to try once.

Though it is available plenty in Market, I had never bought them and have no idea how to pick them. So bought whatever the shopkeeper gave. 

My hus wasn’t able to figure out the added ingredients in it except for Tomato and I am not much aware of Middle Eastern cooking. So made this normally like other stir fries. It came out nice. I mixed this with Rice and Zucchini Rice was super. My little one liked it a lot and I have decided to prepare this often.




Ingredients:

Zucchini 250g
Onion (Medium) 1
Tomato (Medium) 1
Chilli powder ½ tsp
Coriander Powder ¾ tsp
Cumin Powder ¼ tsp
Turmeric Powder 1/8 tsp
Asafoetida 2-3 pinch
Cumin Seeds ½ tsp
Urad Dhal ¼ tsp
Salt
Oil

Preparation:

Peel Zucchini’s skin and chop into small cubes. Chop Onions lengthwise. Cut Tomato into four equal pieces.

Method:

Puree the chopped Tomato pieces.

Heat Oil in a Pan. Add Mustard seeds. When they complete popping up, add Urad dhal and chopped Onions and fry till translucent.

Now add Tomato puree and fry till the oil separates. Add chopped Zucchini, all the Powders and Salt. Mix well. Cover with lid and cook till done.

Serves: 2
Serve with Rice and any Kuzhambu/Curry. This can also be served mixing with Rice.
