  • 1 - Green chilli (chopped finely)
  • 1 tsp - Ginger (chopped)

How to Make Zucchini Dal

  • Wash toor dal thoroughly 3 or 4 times.
  • Chop the zucchini with or without the skin.
  • Pressure cook the toor dal, onion, tomatoes, green chilli, zucchini, ginger, garlic and a cup of water for 3 whistles. (Adjust the dal as required, but zucchini contains sufficient water so do not add too much water. Your dal will turn too watery).
  • Coarsely grind peppercorns and cumin seeds and keep aside.
  • Blend the pressure cooked vegetables with a hand blender. Add salt.
  • Heat oil in a pan, splutter the mustard seed, urad dal, asafoetida powder, curry leaves and red chillies.
  • Mix them with the blended zucchini dal.
  • Add ground peppercorns and cumin seed powder. Adjust the taste as required. If you want it spicier add more of the ground powder.
  • Serve hot.
