ingredients

directions

  • Wash the zucchini thoroughly and pat dry. Now cut into quarters lengthwise and then dice into 1" pieces.
  • 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.
  • Keep aside for later.
  • Heat the oil in a deep pan on a medium flame, till hot.
  • Add the cumin and ajwain seeds and cook till they stop spluttering. Now add the zucchini and mix well.
  • 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.
  • Serve hot with 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.

    My zucchini cooked through, and the spices are delicious! The ajwain isn't overpowering like I thought it would be. I'm eating this re-heated so the crust isn't crispy, but it's still very tasty!

    What a tasty way to cook zucchini. The spices were just right and the coating was crispy. Next time though, I will cut the zucchini into smaller pieces so that it cooks through. Thanks for this great recipe.
