Zucchini Aloo Gobi

What inspired me to try this dish is the creator of this dish, who is the new entrant to our family, my bro-in-law. Its nice to see how he pays attention to the minute details of cooking. This side dish is one of the simplest and requires just one main ingredient, Green chilly! Might sound like we are going to burn our taste buds away. Trust me, after tasting the bhaji, we were left wondering where all the chillies vanished. So...'The more the better'....

Cooked and diced potatoes- 2 cups
Cauliflower- 2 cups
Zucchini- 1 cup
Onions chopped- 2 medium sized
Green chillies- 6 [Please be generous :) ]

Oil- 4 tsp
Urad dal- 1 tsp
Mustard- 1/2 tsp
Jeera/Cumin seeds- 1 tsp (Optional, added since we love its aroma and is good for digestion too)
Turmeric- 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves- Few (Optional)
Spring Onions- 8-10

In a pan, heat oil. Add Urad dal and Mustard seeds. When the Mustard seeds splutter, add Jeera. Now add the split Green chilles and saute for a minute. Add the Onions and saute till golden brown. Add the Cauliflower and sprinkle water. Cover with a lid for it to cook. Add Zucchini and cover the lid once again. Leave it for just about 5 minutes, while the Zucchini cooks. Add the cooked potatoes and mix well. Add Turmeric and salt. Mix well. Add finely chopped sprng onions and heat it for another 2 minutes. This gives the special taste and aroma to the dish. Garnish with Coriander leaves and enjoy with Rotis!

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
