Chappan kaddu is one of of the many varieties of summer squashes, the fruit of the plant Cucurbita pepo, to which almost all summer squashes belong. Compared to winter squashes, summer squashes have a shorter storage life.

Chappan kaddu ki sabzi is a delicious North-Indian style curry. It takes just a few basic spices to turn this bland vegetable into a delicious dish, which can be served with any Indian flatbread.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: 3-4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 500 grams chappan kaddu (summer squash), washed, peeled, and cut into wedges
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoons haran dhania (cilantro), chopped
  • water, as needed

Instructions

  1. Keep a kadhai (pan) over full heat. Add oil. Once the oil is hot, reduce the heat to medium. Add the onions and saute until light pink.
  2. Add the chopped tomatoes. Cook till they become little soft; then add the spices and salt.
  3. Roast the tomatoes until the oil separates out.
  4. Add the chappan kaddu. Reduce the heat to low. Mix well and cover with a lid. If the masala is getting dry, add about 1/4 cup water before covering.
  5. Check the sabzi every 3-4 minutes until the sabzi is cooked soft and the water dries up. When the vegetables are half done, add 1-2 teaspoons of cilantro.
  6. Garnish the dish with cilantro and serve with roti or paratha.

      This dish sounds very good but I would have to do without the red chili powder. My stomach does not tolerater pepper as much as I love it. Thanks for this very good recipe.

      This sounds amazing and since I have written a children's vegetable cookbook I am eager to try all vegetable recipes. Thank you. You should know that the instructions are hard to decipher because there are other words and images overlapping the writing.

      I'm such a picky eater, I'm afraid these recipes are not my cup of tea. But my wife tried one of them and said it was delicious.
