DUDHI / BOTTLE GOURD CURRY


 Dudhi / bottle gourd is one vegetable which is not liked by many people. I prepared it with roasted gram flour and the taste was so different and nice. I was so happy the everyone at home loved this preparation.

Ingredients:
Dudhi .................. Cut into pieces
Tomato ............... 1 big cut into pieces
Ginger-garlic paste... 1 tbsp.
Gram flour ................. 1 tbsp.
Red chilli powder .......1 tsp.
Turmeric powder ..... 1/4 tsp
Coriander powder ..... 1 tsp.
Cumin powder ............ 1 tsp.
Oil .................................. 2tbsp
Salt to taste

For tempering:
Cumin seeds ..................... 1tsp.
Curry leaves .................... 7-8
Asafoetida ......................... a pinch

Method:
1. Heat 1 table spoon oil in a pan and saute ginger-garlic paste.
2. Add the tomato and stir fry.
3. Now add the dudhi pieces, salt and the dry masalas and saute for 2-3 minutes.
4. Add little water and let it simmer till done.
5. Meanwhile, fry the gram flour in 1 tbsp. of oil till golden brown (till you get the aroma),add 1/4 cup of water.Keep stirring to avoid lumps and add this to the curry.
6. Add the tempering.
7. Garnish with coriander leaves.
