Radhe Radhe !

Summer and monsoon are just the right seasons to offer your Thakurjis zuchchini. Here is a tasty and healthy sish to offer your Beloveds.


2 large baby zucchini halved lengthwise
2 oz reduced fat shredded cheese - I used a 4 cheese mexican blend
1/4 medium red bell pepper
A dash of asafoetida
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp Parsley (I used dried but fresh would be even better)
Salt and Pepper to taste


Hollow out centers of zucchini halves and reserve.
Using small food chopper, finely chop zucchini guts, bell pepper, add parsley, too, if using fresh.
Add the chili powder, parsley, salt and pepper and any other seasoning you might like to the chopped veggie mix.
Add one half the cheese to the mixture and combine well.
Spoon into zucchini halves and spread rest of cheese on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 30 minutes - cheese should be golden brown.

Pl note - you can add more spices of your choice, and also a topping of tomato sauce etc. before serving. feel free to experiment.
Makes 2 servings - two halves per person.
