Zucchini Zaaykedar Sabzi (Foil Baked )

This is the first time I am participating in Nupur’s A-Z vegetable series. First I thought of Zunka. Since I don’t have the exact recipe I skipped the idea πŸ™‚


This sabzi can be prepared with no oil/little oil/more oil. Choice is yours.

Procedure is pretty simple. Just pull out all the left over vegees from your crisper.You can select different combos too. Like Aloo Gobhi mutter, Brinjal Aloo anything you fancy.

I chose zucchini , onion, broccoli, tomato, cherry tomato, capsicum and potatoes.

Cut the vegetables into small/big pieces or into roundels.

Preheat the oven for 10 minutes.

Cut out a large piece of foil. Fold it into half. So that it becomes sturdy. This also prevents the vegetables from getting charred.


Place all the cut vegees on the foil. Dribble oil all over.

Sprinkle chilli powder,

haldi (turmeric), salt,

garam masala or any masala of your choice,

a pinch of kasuri methi.

Mix all the ingredients well.

Fold the foil well and place it on a baking tray.

Place the tray on the top shelf close to the top grill of the oven. Bake it in a hot oven 400 degree F or 200 degree C

Check after 8-10 minutes by poking the tip of the knife into the foil. Serve hot . Garnish with lime juice and coriander leaves.

When the vegees were cooking my house was filled with the aroma of the masala and kasuri methi.

This is my entry for Nupur’s A-Z Indian Vegetable Series
