My hubby had potluck in his office , so I had to prepare food just for me….Its kinda boring when we have to eat alone, I usually dont like it, but I have to 🙂 , in the afternoon till 1’o clock I had this oscillation to prepare food or no. Finally found one Zucchini left out in the refrigerator, so I decided to prepare a fast recipe. And I enjoyed this.


Basmathi Rice : 2 cup

Zucchini : 1 medium sized ( shredded with the skin)

Onion : 1/2 thinly sliced

Green Chili : 1 (Slit)

Black Pepper corns : 1/2 teaspoon (powdered)

Cumin Seeds : 1/2 teaspoon

Cinnamon stick : 1 small

Cloves : 2

Garlic : 1 pod thinly sliced

Ginger : small piece grated

Butter : 1/2 tablespoon

olive oil : 1 teaspoon

Salt : 1 teaspoon


Wash the rice and keep it aside. Heat oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, cinnamon stick and cloves, once they start crackling, add the onions let it turn translucent, add ginger and garlic. After 2 mins, add the shredded Zucchini, butter and cook for 3 minutes. Next add the black pepper corn powder and salt. Next add the rice and mix well. Let it cook with the Zucchini with out water. After 3 mins, add 1:2 ration of rice to water and cook. It cooks for the usual time, I prepared it in pressure cooker, cooked it for 3 whsitles and the taste was very good. Do give it a try 🙂
