Bulgarian Zucchini Yogurt Dip

For last few weeks I am trying new recipes using different vegetables. Last month I brought the zucchini , and tried to make curry. But it wasn't successful. While surfing net I found this recipe Called 'Bulgarian yogurt dip' on Recipezaar site. For evening snack I prepared this dish which was very tasty.

Mixing baby drill to yogurt gives nice aroma and rich taste to this dish.You can use this as raita.

I made some slight alteration in the recipe to make it little spicy .


2-3 medium sized zucchini
small bunch of baby drill (sapigea sappu)
hing a pinch
chili powder 1/4 spoon
Gram flour(besan) 3 to5 spoon
ginger fresh paste 1/2
cumin powder 1/4 spoon
yogurt 2 cups
oil for deep fry


Cut zucchini in round thin pieces without peeling the skin. Add little salt to it, keep it aside for 20 minutes, so that it leaves the water, dry this using paper towel.

In a bowl mix gram flour and chili powder,salt with water, make thick paste(it should be same consistency of bonda) dip in zucchini and deep fry in the oil.

In a bowl of 2 cups of yogurt add cumin powder and ginger paste, sprinkle the red chili powder. Add chopped drill to it. Dip fried zucchini in the yogurt and refrigerate this for 2 hrs and then serve

Or you can serve fried zucchini separately with yogurt-drill mix.
