Cumin Spiced Courgette/ Zucchini

2 smallish, tender courgettes/ zucchini, chopped
1 small onion, diced fine
1/2 small tomato, diced (optional)
1 tsp whole cumin
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
1 inch piece of ginger, grated
1/2 tsp hot chilli flakes
Salt to taste
1 tbsp light olive oil
Fresh coriander, chopped to garnish (optional)


In a wide saute pan, heat the oil, and add the whole cumin. Fry for about 30 seconds, until they just start to darken, then add the diced onion.

Fry the onion for 4 - 5 minutes, until just soft and starting to colour. Add the ground cumin, pepper, grated ginger, chilli flakes and tomatoes (if using) and fry together for 2 - 3 minutes.

Add the chopped courgettes/ zucchini to this masala and stir fry together for about 6 - 8 minutes, depending on how crunchy you want your courgettes.

Season to taste with the salt. Sprinkle over some more ground pepper, if you want to, and garnish with fresh chopped coriander, if using.
