Seeded Zucchini Steam-Saute
1 small onion (about 1/4 lb), thinly sliced
3 Tbsp vegetable stock or water
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin seed
1 tsp mustard seed
1 large carrot (about 6 oz.), cut in matchsticks
3 large zucchini (about 1-1/4 lb total), cut in
matchsticks or grated
salt (or garlic salt) and pepper to season
Toss together carrot, zucchini and chili powder in a medium bowl.
Heat a medium-sized, non-stick skillet over high heat. Put
mustard seeds in the pan and cover immediately. Listen carefully,
when seeds begin to pop, swirl pan (holding the lid firmly on the
pan) over the flame until the wildest popping begins to die down.
Pour seeds into vegetable mix. This will take 2 to 3 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium and put cumin seed in the pan. Toast, swirling
frequently, until the seeds become fragrant, about 2 minutes. Pour seeds
into vegetables and mix.
Add onion to the pan, cover, and allow to sweat for 2 to 3 minutes.
Onion should just begin to brown and stick to the pan. Add stock or
water and stir onions to free onions and dissolve brown bits.
Continue to cook and stir until liquid has evaporated and onion is
limp. Add vegetable mixture, and cook, stiring frequently, until
tender-crisp, 3 or 4 minutes for matchsticks, 2 minutes if grated.
Season with salt and pepper and serve.
