Zucchini Ki Bhaji - Stir-fried Zucchini
3 large zucchini
3 tbsps coconut flour or almond meal
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp red chilli powder (optional)
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp carom seeds (ajwain, bishop's weed)
3 tbsps coconut oil
Wash the zucchini thoroughly and pat dry. Now cut into quarters lengthwise
and then dice into 1" pieces.
Put the cut zucchini into a large mixing bowl. Add the coconut flour,
turmeric, cumin and red chilli powders, salt to taste and mix well to coat
all the zucchini pieces. Keep aside for later.
Heat the oil in a deep pan on a medium flame, till hot.
Add the cumin and ajwain seeds and cook till they stop spluttering. Now add
the zucchini and mix well.
Simmer the flame and cook till the coconut flour coating is cooked - it
will look golden and give off a cooked aroma. Ideally the zucchini will
also be cooked by this time.
