Zucchini or courgette is one vegetable which i’ve started using very recently.I used to back out from buying this vegetable,I was under a wrong impression,that this is kind of watery and tastes bland.And now as per my resolution,to try out new veggies I bought zucchini and i fell for it.I feel really bad for neglecting such a lovely vegetable.Whatever I prepared with it turned out to be good.
And here goes my new favorite recipe..
Zucchini cut into small dices – 1
Chopped Onion – 1 small
Chopped Green chillies – 4
Chopped Garlic – 1 tsp
Grated coconut – 1/2 cup
Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
Mustard Seeds – 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves – a few
Salt – to taste
Oil – as needed
Heat oil in a pan and allow mustard seeds and jeera seeds to splutter.Add onion and curry leaves and saute until onion turn translucent.Mix in garlic,green chillies ,salt and turmeric powder and saute for a while.Now add diced zucchini,cover and cook for 5 minutes,stirring occasionally.Mix in grated coconut ,simmer for 3-4 minutes and turn off the heat.Thoran is ready to be served with rice.
