Marrow Masala


When I first got married, I would make really quick and easy meals for dinner and one that I came up with, was Marrow Masala.  Which I would serve up with some rice or khichdi.  A tasty and hydrating vegetable with onion and in a spicy tomato base has always been a winner in our home. 

I’m known for just eating it with some natural yoghurt, so healthy and so good for you!  It cooks extremely quickly and you have an incredible light curry in a matter of minutes!

Hope you all have a lovely week, see you tomorrow.  Much love D x


1 medium marrow peeled & grated
1 small white onion grated
½ tsp sunflower oil
¼ tsp cumin seeds
2 cloves
Pinch of asafoetida
3 tbsp crushed tomato passata
½ tsp salt or to taste
Pinch of sugar
¼ tsp turmeric powder
¼ tsp chilli powder
1 tsp coriander & cumin powder
½ tsp garam masala
Chopped fresh coriander to garnish


• In a medium saucepan heat up the oil, asafoetida, cloves and cumin seeds.  Once the seeds start to sizzle, throw in the grated onion and marrow


• Sauté for 5-7 minutes on a low heat until soft.  Sprinkle all the seasoning and spices plus the crushed tomato, mix gently




• Cover and simmer for a further 8-10 minutes and then garnish with some chopped coriander

      • Dimple, how did you make your FB page like my FB page? I tried to do the same but it only does it through my own FB identity. Is your Shivaay Delights page created like a personality that can make friends? Please enlighten me on this 🙂
