Zucchini Curry and Website Update

Zucchini Curry
Who the hell doesn't have a ridiculous amount of zucchini? Even if you don't grow it, people are throwing that shit at you. Last weekend at the All Good Festival, I made some zucchini Curry to share with my friends. We all loved it, and I know you will to! I made another dish of it last night, with a few changes. . .

1/2 teaspoon yellow or brown mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 garlic clove, chopped
1 to 2 teaspoons chopped fresh jalapeƱo chile including seeds
2 teaspoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, thinly sliced
6 medium green or Cocozelle zucchini (3 lb), cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1 (13 1/2- to 14-oz) can unsweetened coconut milk, well stirred
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup roasted cashews, chopped

Lacking the ginger and cumin seeds for the paste, so I just used ground cumin and NO ginger--bummer!

Crushing the curry paste together. . .

The other ingredients I added, but didn't have onion--bummer #2!

And my bowl ready to eat!

  1. It was great with the additional veggies I added, but I think I missed the ginger I put in the first pot. In addition to the zucchini, I used potato, carrot, shrooms, garlic and frozen snow peas
  2. Add some butter, salt & bay leaf to the cooking water of the rice for extra flavor
  3. If your family is a sauce-hog like we are, use more than one can of coconut milk. Best one for us is one and half cans, but what the hell you'll do with the remaining half can isn't my problem. . .
  4. I didn't add the cashews. Just completely spaced on it. . .

Instructions: Sautee the veggies til tender, then add the curry paste to taste. I made extra curry paste, and added about 2 teaspoons. Stir in the coconut milk and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve over basmati rice.
