    YouTube - Zucchini Rice Recipe by Manjula, Indian Vegetarian Cooking

    Full recipe


    Zucchini rice is a great side dish for any time of the day.

    Serving for 4.

    Zucchini Rice


    * 1 cup rice
    * 2 cups water
    * 1 cup shredded zucchini (with skin)
    * 1 tablespoon of oil
    * 1 teaspoon of butter
    * 1/2 teaspoon cumin seed (jeera)
    * 1/2 teaspoon black mustard seed (rai)
    * 4 red peppers whole
    * 2 Bay leaves (tajpat)
    * 1/2 teaspoon of salt
    * Small piece of cinnamon stick about 1/2 inch (dal chini)
    * 1 teaspoon of lemon juice


    1. Heat the oil and butter in a heavy saucepan over medium high heat. Test the heat by adding one cumin seed to oil; if the cumin cracks right away oil is ready.
    2. Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds to the oil. After seeds crack add red pepper and bay leaves. Add rice and stir-fry for about 2 minutes.
    3. Add water, zucchini, salt and lemon juice. Stir and bring to boil.
    4. After rice comes to a boil turn the heat down to low and cover the pan. Cook rice for about fifteen minutes or until the rice is tender and the water has evaporated.
    5. Serve as is, with soup, yogurt, and pickle.


    Melt some cheddar cheese over rice.


    Replace zucchini with 1 1/2 cup finally chopped spinach.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
