Add the rice and water and let it settle for 15 minutes. Add oil to a pan and when it is hot, add mustard, cumin, red/green chilli, garlic,ginger. Saute them for 2 minutes and add the zucchinis and saute for 5 minutes. Add the garam masala and salt and the rice and water mixture and boil at medium heat till the rice is cooked.


The zucchini is a bland vegetable so the taste you give it, it will just soak in the taste. So its one of the easiest vegetables for experiments.I have served this with sambhar/dal/lentil. Let your imaginations flow..
