Sunny Zucchini Curry

Recipe by magpie diner
READY IN: 40mins




  • Begin by heating the oil over medium and then adding in the leek. Allow it to cook for a few minutes and become tender, turning that beautiful shade of bright green. Add in the garlic and let that cook for a few minutes.
  • Next add the turmeric, chili powder, fresh green chili and salt. Let that cook for just a few minutes then add in the zucchini.
  • Add just enough water to the pot to nearly cover the zucchini, about 1/2 an inch below. Cover loosely and let that cook until the zucchini is tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, grind up the coconut flakes and cumin. A coffee grinder that you use for spices works best. You want it to be quite fine, even paste like.
  • Once the zukes are cooked, stir in the coconut/cumin mixture - mix it in well. Turn off/move off the heat and then add in a few tbsp of creamer (or yogurt or coconut milk). Adjust seasoning.
  • Cover loosely and let sit. The coconut needs some time to become tender -- otherwise it could feel chewy. It may seem thin at first, but it will thicken up a bit. You can always leave it to sit on the back burner for a while and reheat gently prior to serving if you like.
