Made in under an hour this vegetable curry recipe is one for those nights when you don’t want to spend long in the kitchen. Packed with flavour and a dash of spices this is a curry recipe for all. Serve with homemade chapatti for a simple yet tasty midweek dinner.

I LOVE vegetable curries. They are my top method of getting my kids (and my husband as a matter of fact!) to get their daily five a day. I have lots of vegetable curry recipes on my blog and I am always adding more, such as my aloo gobi, palak aloo, mixed vegetable curry, and so many more.

Courgettes and zucchini are the same vegetables. Courgette is more of a term used by the British whereas zucchini is a term used by the French or Italians. Courgettes are like marrows, but not entirely the same vegetable.

There are so many benefits to courgettes that it’s hard to list all of them. The best thing about this vegetable is that it has next to calories.

100g of courgettes only has about 17 calories! Not only is it perfect if you want to lose weight, but it is the source of so many beneficial nutrients, such as potassium, iron, and vitamin C.

Usually, I like to use garlic paste, but with this recipe, I prefer to use fresh, finely chopped garlic. However, this is entirely up to you if you would like to use garlic paste instead. I would use 1 tbsp of garlic paste in place of the chopped garlic.

As with many vegetables, zucchini has a high content of water. This means that when you are cooking the water will slowly be released. Depending on how dry you like your curries to be you can cook your curry more or less.

I used 3 medium-sized courgettes. This was about 700g in total. Obviously, this will change depending on the exact size of the courgettes. For the number of spices that this recipe calls for I would use any number of courgettes weighing anything between 500g-800g.

  • Heat up the oil on medium heat until hot
  • Add the cumin seeds and finely chopped garlic then sauté for 1-2 minutes until fragrant
  • Add the finely diced onion and cook for 4-5 minutes on medium heat until softened and lightly browned
  • As the onions are cooking dice the tomatoes then add into pan and cook for another 3-4 minutes until softened
  • Add the salt, chilli powder, and turmeric powder then cook the spices for 2-3 minutes before adding the water and cooking for a further 2-3 minutes – the water allows the spices to release their colour and prevents the spices from burning
  • As the spices are cooking peel and chop the courgettes into bite-sized chunks then mix into the spices before covering and cook for 15-20 minutes until soft
  • Add the finely chopped coriander then mix
  • Serve with homemade chapatti and enjoy!
