Why I Love This Recipe

Garlic and Indian Spices will totally redefine Zucchini's identity in this stir-fry. As Zucchini cooks fast, this can be your healthy rush time rescue recipe.

Ingredients You'll Need

Zucchini - 4 medium
onion - 1 medium
green chili - 1
red chili powder - 1 tsp
turmeric powder - 1 tsp
salt - 1 tsp
chana dal - 1 tsp
urad dal - 1 tsp
mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Cilantro (Coriander leaves) - 1 Tbsp

For Spice Powder:
Coconut Powder ( Dry) - 2 Tbsp
Garlic - 5 to 6
Cumin Seeds - 2 tsp


Heat the oil in the non-stick pan. Once the oil is hot add chana dal, urad dal, mustard seeds and fry them until light golden color.

Add chopped green chili and chopped (thinly sliced) onions. Once they become translucent, then add turmeric powder.

Trim and chop the zucchini in length wise in 1 inch sticks. Keep frying on high. (Do not close the lid, it becomes watery too quick). Add salt and give another stir.

Meanwhile grind the Coconut, Garlic and Cumin Seeds in mixie or blender, make the spice powder.

Add this powder to the zucchini and fry for 1 min. Add red chili powder and mix it very well. Keep on frying until all the spices are mixed well. Stir-Fry on medium for about another 4 to 5 min.

Taste and adjust the seasonings and add chopped cilantro and turn off the heat and transfer it to serving bowl.
