Zucchini daal

Today I was thinking what I could make for lunch and since I had zucchinis in my fridge I decided to make daal. This dish is nutritious and easy digestible as well. It goes perfect with rice or roti.


- 1 cup toor daal
- 2 medium zucchinis, cubed
- 1 large tomato, chopped
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- ½-inch piece ginger, finely grated
- A pinch hing/ asafoetida
- 1 Tsp. Cumin seeds
- 1 Tsp. Coriander powder
- 1 Tsp. Cumin powder
- ½ Tsp. Turmeric powder
- Red chilli powder to taste
- Salt to taste
- 1 Tbsp. Canola oil
- 2 Tbsp. Chopped coriander leaves


Wash daal and cook with 3 cups water in a pressure cooker for 3-4 whistles. Wait for steam to release.
In a large pan heat oil and add cumin seeds, hing and onions. Fry till onions are translucent. Add tomatoes, spice powders, ginger and salt. When the tomatoes become mushy add the zucchinis and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Add the daal and mix well. Adjust the water. (I added about ½ cup more). Let it come to a boil and simmer for about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and serve.
