Baby Zucchini Curry

I have always wanted to cook with zucchini but doubted its taste. After seeing these baby zucchinis i couldn't stop bringing some home. They were very cute, petite, round and firm. My first experience wasn't that bad as i thought earlier., i made a very simple curry with onions and green chillies. The curry tasted so good and now I'm very much open to experiment with these zuccinis.. The skin was so soft and thin you need not even peel it, and i found its taste very close to ridge gourd. The best part with the zuccini, it cooked in no time.




Ingredients:
2 small round baby zuccinis or 1 long zuccini
1 small red onion
1 long Thai green chilli or 3 small regular Indian chillies
few chopped cilantro leaves


For tempuring:
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
3 tbsp oil
a pinch of turmeric

I found this above picture very interesting for the CLICK - METAL event by Jugalbandi..

Preparation:
Chop zuccini into 1 inch cubes and onions very fine
In a kadai or saute pan, heat oil and add mustard and coriander seeds
Once they start to pop, add turmeric, green chillies and chopped onion
Saute for 1 min and add the chopped zuccini
Cook until the zuccini and soft
ADD SALT ONLY ONCE THE ZUCCHINI IS COOKED
Take off from the heat and add chopped coriander


We had this with steamed hot rice, you can even serve this with rotis/ chapathis / tortillas.. Do adjust the spice( green chillies ) to your taste.

Aww ... cute, chubby baby zucchinis. Maybe I'll go hunting for them this week. I'll bet they'll taste great if stuffed with a spicy saute?
