Zucchini Stir Fry#Foodieextravaganza

A courgette / zucchine is a variety of squash / edible fruit, usually long and available in yellow and green, which is used to make vegetable as well as in other sweet or savory dishes. 

In Maharashtra it is called Gilke. Do you know that Zucchini is very low in calories and contains no saturated fats or cholesterol.  Have started eating zucchini in last few years, because, earlier this was an exotic vegetable, expensive and not readily available. But now in winters we get these in plenty and reasonably priced , it's also available through out the year but at a high price. I have started to love this vegetable.  

For Foodie Extravaganza {Party} event this month the theme is Zucchini! Our host is Sue Lau. Thank you Sue for hosting this event and choosing a wonderful theme.
Let's make this quick and simple stir fry. 

5-7  Zucchini Green & Yellow -  meduim sized and  tender
1 Teaspoon Cumin seeds
½ Teaspoon Mustard seeds
¼ Teaspoon Asafoetida
¼ Teaspoon Turmeric powder
Teaspoon Red Chilly powder
Salt to taste
2 Tablespoons Oil
Chopped Coriander to garnish


Chop the ends, wash zucchini gently, but properly (don't bruise the skin). Cut into half vertically and then cut into 2-3 mm slices.
In a pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds , when they splutter, add cumin seeds when they start to brown, add asafoetida,  immediately slide in the zucchini. Sprinkle salt and turmeric, stir once and cook on high flame for 2 minutes. Cover and cook on medium low flame for 3 to 4 minutes.  Open  the lid,  add chilly powder, mix well, cook for another  two to three  minutes (do not overcook or else they will become mushy since it's high in water content)
Transfer to a serving bowl, garnish with coriander. Enjoy as a side dish or with rotis.
