Zucchini Cherry Tomato

Packed with the zing of mustard, garlic and paprika, this zucchini cherry tomato curry is lip-smacking delicious.

The curry is light in texture, great for dipping bread and parathas in to soak up its flavors.

Mustard-Flavored Zucchini Cherry Tomato

You Need:

  • Zucchini – 250 grams (1 small)
  • Cherry tomatoes – 200 grams (about 30 cherry tomatoes)
  • Ground mustard* – 1/2 tablespoon (increase if you like it sharper)
  • Paprika powder** – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Garlic – 6 fat cloves
  • Salt – to taste
  • Turmeric powder – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Asafoetida powder – a pinch
  • Mustard oil – 1/2 tablespoon
  • Coriander leaves – for garnish

*I use McCormick Ground Mustard. If you do not have ready-made ground mustard, you could grind yellow mustard seeds to make some at home, as in this potato-mustard recipe.

**I use McCormick Hot Hungarian Paprika. You could substitute paprika with Indian red chili powder – keep in mind that Indian red chili powder is hotter: adjust the quantity accordingly.
