Zucchini Koora

4 Medium Zucchini
2 Onions
2 Tomatoes
3 Green Chilies
3 tsp Kura Podi – Curry Powder (From my previous blog in Podis/Powders)
½ tsp Tamarind paste

Chop Zucchini into 1” pieces and onions and tomatoes into small pieces.
Take 3 tsp of oil in a skillet and make tadka with ½ tsp jeera, ½ tsp mustard seeds and hing. Add chopped onions and green chilies and fry till the onion turns translucent.

Then add chopped Zucchini, salt, turmeric and cook in medium flame for 4 minutes till the vegetables half cooked, then, add chopped tomatoes and cook till all of them are soft. Then add 3 tsp of kura podi/ curry powder, ½ tsp of tamarind paste and mix gently. Do not overcook or mix too much, this will make the vegetable all mushy and the shape will be lost.

Taste for salt and seasonings and adjust accordingly. Garnish with coriander.
This can be eaten with rice or rotis/chapatti.
