  • Preheat the grill. Wash, wipe dry and smear the outer skin of the zucchinis with 1 tablespoon oil. Grill until charred on all sides.
  • Keep turning every 5 mins or so to ensure even cooking. Remove the zucchini onto a plate and cover with foil.
  • Let rest for about 5 minutes. Peel the skin off and mash the pulp coarsely with a fork. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the cumin and let it splutter. Add the chopped onion and saute for a minute.
  • Add the slit green chillies, chopped ginger and garlic next. Add turmeric and saute until everything is soft and translucent.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and salt. Saute until the juices evaporate and the tomatoes are soft.
  • Add the kashmiri chillli powder, garam masala, kasuri methi and saute for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the mashed zucchini pulp, the half and half and frozen peas if using.
  • Let everything come up to boil together until it all thickens and the raw smell of the masalas disappear.
  • Serve hot with rotis or chapatis.
