Lentil Zucchini Side Dish


This is yet another creation of Biji ammai – simple, quick and yummy. What set it apart from the normal lentil preparation is the usage of Zucchini. If you don’t have Zucchini you can use pumpkin instead! Don’f forget to give me a feedback post you cook šŸ™‚

Gram daal / chana daal (lentil) – 1 cup

Zucchini – 2-3 numbers

Cumin powder – 1 tsp

Coriander powder – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/4 tsp

Salt to taste

  1. Soak gram dal for 1 hour
  2. Cook the dal with sufficient water without closing the vessel. Howver, dal should not get fully cooked.
  3. Add chopped Zucchini and cook
  4. Add cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric, salt and cook
  5. Serve with Indian bread (chapatti) or rice

Till next time…Happy cooking!
