Pakistani Style Turai Ka Salan (Courgettes Curry)

Total Time

Like many basic vegetable curries this recipe has it all. Only difference is I add lemon & garam masala powder at the end to give it a more aromatic flavor. You can also add meat in it after frying the onions & cook the meat along with tomatoes & spices till it gets done. Then add courgettes & follow the rest of the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry the onions in the oil till they turn dark brown.
  2. Then add tomato, ginger garlic paste, salt, red chili powder, coriander powder & turmeric powder. Saute the onion & tomato till the tomatoes become tender & the oil starts showing in the curry.
  3. Add courgettes, mix & let them tenderize for 20 minutes on low medium heat.
  4. Now add garam masala powder & cumin seeds. Cover & let it cook for another 5 minutes.
  5. In the end add the green chili & lemon juice. Let it simmer for additional 2 minutes.
  6. Serve warm with naan, roti or chapati.

I made this dish twice, and it turned out great each time. I made it according to the recipe, and it was just enough for my husband and me. The next time I doubled the recipe so we could have leftovers. This is great with paratha or rice. I will definitely make this often.
