Zucchini in onion tomato gravy

I love Zucchini but never tried to make any dish out of ite. Its one vegetable that was in my list of veggies that I haven't tried. This time, when we went grocery shopping, I bought zucchini and told myself that this time I am going to check this veggie off my "must try veggie" list. Today, when I was thinking about my dinner, this zucchini came to my mind. Thats the story behind my zucchini in onion tomato gravy...

I never thought zucchini would have so much nutrition. When I read about it, it amazed me. Its is rich in Vitamin c and has anti inflammatory properties.

It prevent risk of having multiple sclerosis

Very good for eyes.. It is said to contain sufficient amounts of folate, pottasium vitamin A.

Prevents heart disease and controls cholestrol levels.


Zucchini - 1 chopped into cubes
Onion - 1 medium size , finely chopped
Tomato - 2 small (pureed)
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsps
Fennel Seeds - 1 tsps
Garlic - 3 pods choped finely
Garam Masala - 2 tbsps
Turmeric - 1 tsps


Heat pressure pan with oil. Add fennel seeds and garlic. Fry for few seconds and add onions. Fry for about a min.

Add tomato cut into small pieces or puree . Add salt, turmeric, garam masala and mix well.

Now add zucchini, mix well and let it pressure cook for just 2 sounds. If you are not using pressure cooker, you can add zucchini and sufficient water and let it cook in medium low stirring once in a while until it is cooked well.

Garnish with cilantro and serve with hot chapathi or rice.
Happy Cooking!!!
