Zucchini dal recipe - Curry for rice and roti

Zucchini dal

Zucchini dal recipe -Zucchini dal is a healthy and delicious curry prepared to serve with hot plain rice, roti or chapathi. Similar type of dal can be made by using beans, brinjal, potato and ivy gourd. This is a South Indian konkani style curry which uses fresh coconut as key ingredient for the masala paste. In this masala paste, I have used green chillies instead of red chillies. I often make vegetable dal with such masala paste to serve with rice. The combination of thoor dal, masala paste and above mentioned vegetables are awesome. There are several other ways to make dishes with zcchini such as zucchini dosa, kadhi, sambar, stir fry etc
