READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by roja khan

It's easy to cook and so tasty, I for one could eat it all by itself. You of course, can choose to combine it with hot Chapatis or rice and your favorite Daal!

A quick and easy recipe, just the thing to spice up zucchini and make it a bit more interesting. I used smaller zucchini to avoid the bitter taste that the larger ones tend to have. My zukes did not really have a crust, though-- just some partial coverage. I'd like to try this as a deep-fry by increasing the amount of besan flour, adding water to the mix to form a paste, and then deep-frying in several inches of peanut oil.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash the zucchini thoroughly and pat dry. Now cut into quarters lengthwise and then dice into 1" pieces.
  2. Put the cut zucchini into a large mixing bowl. Add the bengal gram flour, turmeric, cumin and red chilli powders, salt to taste and mix well to coat all the zucchini pieces.
  3. Keep aside for later.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep pan on a medium flame, till hot.
  5. Add the cumin and ajwain seeds and cook till they stop spluttering. Now add the zucchini and mix well.
  6. Simmer the flame and cook till the bengal gram flour coating is cooked - it will look golden and give off a cooked aroma. Ideally the zucchini will also be cooked by this time.
  7. Serve hot with Chapatis or rice and your favorite Daal.
