MW Zucchini Moru Curry

I got some fresh zucchinis sterday when i went to farmer's market as they were dead cheap and i picked few for making out some stir fries or soup, finally i prepared today this simple,quick and easy curry with whisked curd and a grounded paste with grated coconut,cumin seeds and green chillies which i prepared easily using microwave oven..Grated zucchini gets cooked easily in microwave oven,which helped a lot for making this curry as they get ready very quickly..This delicious moru curry goes to Srivalli's MEC-Curries & Gravies..Pls do check ur microwave oven power before cooking, coz the cooking time varies according to ur microwave oven power..

MW Zucchini Moru Curry

1cup Grated zucchini
1+1/2cups Whisked curd
1/4cup Grated coconut
1tsp Cumin seeds
2nos Green chillies
A pinch Turmeric powder
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/2tsp Urad dal
2nos Dry red chillies
Few curry leaves
Oil
Salt

Heat enough oil in microwave bowl for a second, add the mustard seeds, urad dal,curry leaves and dry red chillies, cook for 2-3minutes in high..meanwhile grind the grated coconut,cumin seeds and green chillies as fine paste with enough water..Once the tempered spices turns brown, add the grated zucchini, cook for 3 minutes in high (stir twice)..

Add the grounded paste,turmeric powder,salt to the cooked zucchini,give a stir and cook for 5-7minutes in high (stir in between)..Finally add the whisked curd to the veggies, give a stir and cook for 1-2minutes..Serve immediately with rice and spicy fried potatoes..
