Simple Zucchini Fry

Hello friends,

Here is another nice summer vegetable curry that we all love at our house and it is really simple and easy to make. It takes just 10 minutes from start to finish :)

Simple Zucchini Fry

Zuchhini - 2 cups - chopped in 1 inch squares or half circles
Rai (Mustard Seeds) - 1 tsp
Jeera (Cumin Seeds) - 1 tsp
Red Chillies - 1-2 broken in pieces
Hing (Asafoetida) - 1 pinch
Salt - as per taste
Meetha Neem (Curry Leaves) - 4-5 leaves
Sugar - 1 tsp
Oil - 1 tsp

  • Take oil in a pan and add rai, jeera, heeng, curry leaves and broken red dry chillies.
  • Once they all start spluttering, add zuchhini, salt and sugar.
  • Cover and cook for 2-3 min.
  • Take off the lid and fry for 2-3 min.
  • Thats all :)

Serve it with roti/paratha or rice, whicever way you like. It cannot get any simpler and healthier. Feel free to skip adding oil, if you want to make it completely healthy.

Sending this to Summer Foods and Drinks event of Indrani.

Thanks Kiran. Yes, it is called "Meetha Neem" in Rajasthan and many other such states and yes it is also called Kadi-patha. That is what even I like about blog world is learning new names and new ingredients.
