Zucchini Besan Sabji (Jain Style)


his is a simple, delicious and quick stir fry that you can whip up in minutes. Today first time I made this subji  and every one liked it. We enjoyed this with Dal and phulkas today.

Zucchini - 2
Besan - 4 tbsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Fennel powder - 1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt per taste
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Hing - 1/8 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

Wash and peel the zucchini. Next I'll try without peeling. Cut them in thin slices. Heat the oil in a pan. When oil is hot add mustard seeds. When the seeds pop add hing followed by zucchini and rest of the masalas. Fry the zucchini till soft. It will hardly take few minutes. Sprinkle besan and mix well. Zucchini should be coated by besan . Stir occasionally. Let it cook until besan looks crispy and golden. 
Garnish and serve with phulka and dal. I've garnished it with green onion but it can be skipped if you want to omit onion.
