Category: Vegetables, Indian, Side Dishes

 Ingredients List

  • 12 oz Courgettes (zucchini)
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 1 tb Cumin seed
  • 2 tb Finely-chopped fresh
  • -- coriander (cilantro)
  • 2 Green chillies (optional)


NOTE: 12 oz courgettes is 3 small ones.

CONVERSIONS: 12 oz = 350 g

ABBREVIATIONS: tb = tablespoon
Cut the courgettes in half lengthways, then slice into thin half-moons. If
using the green chillies, cut in half, deseed and remove all white
membrane; then slice acrossways thinly.

Put the onion in a pan with enough stock to cover. Bring to the boil -
don't put a lid on - and boil off the liquid, stirring constantly. The idea
is to soften the onion without browning.

When the liquid is almost gone, add the cumin seed and stirfry for a moment
before adding the courgette slices. Add a little water if necessary; mix
well and add a pinch of salt. Turn the heat to very low and put the lid on.

Now leave them to steam until very tender - this is not a "crisp" vegetable
dish at all, rather meltingly tender. You will probably not need to stir
them at all. Keeping the lid on keeps all the moisture in so it doesn't
