Zucchini Turnip Stir Fry

Roti-sabzi, Pulao, even cutlets. All of this can get boring on a day to day basis. Maybe I won't tire of pasta that quickly. I haven't tested myself in that area. Not that I plan to in the near future. I had to use up my winter bounty and decided to make this stir fry. I had not cooked with turnips before. I'd only eaten turnips in this pickle.

I made a simple stir fry that we had with some cooked cornmeal. The combination was very nice and our lunch plate was colourful. I didn't get a chance to take a photo of my lunch plate. (That would be too much, wouldn't it? Even if everyone at work knows I'm a food blogger!)

2 Zucchinis, cut into 2" sticks

2 Turnips, peeled and sliced

2 carrots, peeled and cut into 2" sticks

2 Onions, quartered

2 Tomatoes, quartered

1 tsp Chilli Flakes

1 tsp Basil

1 tsp Parsley

1 tsp Oregano

1 tsp Garlic, chopped

Salt and Pepper to taste

1 tbsp Olive Oil

Heat the oil in a pan. Add the onions and the garlic. Add the chilli flakes, basil, parsley and oregano and fry for a minute. Add the tomatoes, zucchini, turnips and the carrots. Add the salt and pepper. Cover and cook till the vegetables are done. Serve hot with rice or cooked corn/wheat meal.

I'm sending this to Divya as she hosts this month's edition of Think Spice... Think Pepper.
