Savory Indian Zucchini Bread

Ingredients

2/3 cup sour yogurt (the thicker the yogurt, the more you should use)
Warm water

Salt to taste

Combine the ondhwa flour and yogurt. Add warm water and stir until you get a thick batter (just thicker than pancake batter). Cover and let sit out overnight in a warm place.

The next day, heat the oil in a small saucepan.
3
Add the mustard seeds and fry them until they start to pop.
4
Add the zucchini to the oil and cook until just cooked (less than 2 minutes).
5
Cool the zucchini and add it to the batter.

7
Add the chili powder and cilantro and correct the seasonings.
8

Just before baking, add the baking soda to the batter.

Bake 20 - 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

About

Note: This does stick, so either grease the pan well or line with parchment (or use a silicon pan). Also, this does not rise much at all. You can use a smaller, deeper pan for larger slices - it will not overflow the sides of the pan.
