Zucchini Dal

After moving to Edison made a few friends here. Priya is one such friend who taught me this wonderful recipe with Zucchini. This dal can be eaten with rotis or with rice. You can prepare this dal by using any lentil of your choice but the taste best comes out when you use toor dal.


1 Zucchini (finely chopped)
1 onion (finely chopped)
2 green chillies
1/2 cup toor dal
few curry leaves
mustard seeds and chana dal for tempering
salt acc to taste
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder


Pressure cook the dal with turmeric powder and keep aside. Meanwhile heat the pan with oil and let the mustard seeds and chana dal splutter. Add curry leaves, aesofotida and onion. Saute the onions for few minutes and add the zucchini. Cook the zucchini for some time till they are kind of half done. Add the mashed dal and salt. You can add little water and let it boil for few minutes. Once done serve it with rotis or rice.
