Courgette/Zucchini Potato Curry

Today’s recipe is Courgette/Zucchini & Potato Curry (Turiya Bataka nu Shaak). 


(serves 2)

It can be eaten as a main course or as a side dish. 


2½ tbsps. sunflower oil
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 pinch asafoetida
1 medium sized potato (washed, peeled and sliced)
¼ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp salt
¾ tsp garlic
½ tsp green chillies (fresh and ground)
2 fresh medium sized courgettes/zucchinis (washed and sliced)
75mls water


1. Heat the oil in a saucepan on a medium high heat.

2. Once it is hot, add in the cumin seeds and let them cook until they start to go golden brown in colour.


3. Add in the asafetida followed by the sliced potatoes.

4. Toss well until the potatoes are coated with the oil and cumin seeds mixture.

5. Add in the turmeric, garlic, green chillies, and salt and stir well.

6. Add in the courgettes/zucchinis and toss them into the mix already in the saucepan. Do not over stir otherwise it may break everything up turning the ingredients into a mash.


7. Add in the water and cover the saucepan with its’ lid.

8. Turn the heat down to a low heat and cook for a further 10 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked.

So there you have it; give it a try and let me know how it turned out for you! It is also a great accompaniment to a meat dish …
