This is a simple vegetarian recipe. Courgettes simmered with onion, tomatoes and yoghurt in a fragrant mix of spices. This dish tastes good if served with chapathi but you can serve it with boiled rice, too.
Vegetable oil – 2 tbsp
Onion - 1, thinly sliced
Courgettes - 2 peeled and cut into circles
Ginger+Garlic paste – 1 tsp
Chilli powder – 1 tsp
Turmeric – 1/8th tsp
Coriander powder – 1 ½ tsp
Cumin Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Tomatoes - 4, chopped
Yoghurt – 2 tbsp
Heat oil in a large sturdy pan over medium heat.
Sauté onion until transparent. Add Ginger garlic paste and sauté everything. Add chopped tomatoes, mix and cook them until mushy by covering the pan with the lid.
Now add courgettes, salt, chilli powder, turmeric, coriander, cumin powder, garam masala and yoghurt and combine thoroughly.
Add about 100 ml of water, reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 10 – 15 min, stirring occasionally.
