Shredded Zucchini Subji

This recipe is shockingly simple to make and takes hardly any time at all. This is a nice thing to make if a friend drops by unexpectedly. Of course, it works much better if you have a food processor to grate your zucchini.



Add the ghee to a pan on high heat (the best is a thick stainless steel wok). While the oil is warming up, grate the chilli and ginger. Add the mustard seeds to the hot ghee and let them start popping. Also add the cumin seeds, hing, and turmeric. Stir a little and throw the grated chilli and ginger to the oil.

At this point, add the shredded zucchini. Stir thoroughly. Within a minute, add 1/2 teaspoon of salt (to draw water out of the zucchini and make the prep cook faster). Keep stirring; you'll start seeing moisture coming out of the zucchini.

Once the zucchini becomes limp (takes about 2 minutes), add the garam masala (a mixture of several spices, commonly used in Indian cooking). We're done. This only took three or four minutes of cooking time.
