BM #118 Week 2 Day 2 - 

The letter Z is a unique letter for an Andhra dish to start with and Zucchini comes in very handy for the A-Z series. The recap of the series will be posted tomorrow.

The thali I featured today is not very regular at home. This happens when the refrigerator needs to be cleaned out and I find 1 zucchini, handful of tindora and a chayote squash.

The rest of the dishes like the Peas-Tomato rice and the payasam happened on the fly.

In the thali there are Peas-Tomato rice, Zucchini stir fry, Rava-Semiya Mango Payasam, Methi-Mango Dal, Horsegram Rasam, Chayote Squash Curry, Tindora Fry, Rice and Yogurt 

Ingredients - 

Zucchini 1 medium
Salt, Turmeric, Coconut Powder as needed
Seasoning (Oil 1 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1/2 tsp, Jeera 1/2 tsp, Red chili 1, Curry leaves few)

Method Of Preparation -

Chop the zucchini into bite sized pieces.

In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients.

Sprinkle turmeric and add the chopped zucchini.

Saute until they are slightly tender but retain the crunch.

Sprinkle salt and coconut powder, mix well and remove from heat.

Serve with rice and dal for a complete meal.


Preparation Time 15 minutes
Serves 2-3

  2. This is a very tasty curry. Also a healthy one too.

  3. Nice , the simple zucchini sounds perfect for the fridge cleaning thali - he he ! A thali for fridge cleaning is very very interesting and I have been smiling over this thought . We have a seyal sabzi where we use most vegetables when we clean the fridge ! But this is excellent .

  7. I surely wouldn't mind a meal like that even if it is a part of fridge cleaning. ;) The zucchini stir fry sounds very simple yet delicious...

  8. Suma Gandlur Says:
  9. That's a very delicious platter and zucchini definitely comes handy when doing A - Z Indian regional series. The stir fry is simple and that's how most of the curries get cooked in my home.
