Hi everyone! How have you all been? My today's recipe is very easy and simple one again. Ha Ha and I am sure you all must be thinking, what!! another simple one, but trust me you would love it. So should we begin. Dudhi or bottle gourd we have in many ways, some spicy or some sweet. Lets hear what you have to say to this one.
- 1 bottlegourd/dudhi
- 2 green chillies
- 1/2 cup chana dal soaked for 1hour
- salt to taste
- 1/4 tsp turmeric powder/haldi
- 1/4 tsp coriander powder/ dhaniya powder
- 1/4 tsp Dry mango powder/ amchoor powder or lemon juice
- 1tbsp oil
- a pinch of hing
- 1 small piece of ginger chopped
- coriander leaves to garnish
Chop dudhi into small pieces. In a cooker, put oil to heat and add green chillies cut in small pieces. Add hing and stir for a minute. Add dudhi and put chana dal which has been soaked earlier. Mix and add all the masalas. Now add little water and cover and cook till 1 whistle. Let the pressure cooker cool down on its own. Open and mash chana dal dudhi mixture slightly so it thickens. If its too thick add some water and if its too watery let it cook for some time to get desired consistency.
Garnish with coriander leaves and ginger and serve hot with rice or chapati.
There is a dry method to make this or keep it like gravy.
