Courgettes curry

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.
