Sorakaya/Anapakaya/Lauki palu posina koora / Bottle gourd with milk curry

Tuesday, October 6, 2009

Bottle gourd is on of those vegetables which can be cooked in many ways. When i was kid, if bottle gourd is the curry,i used to rush into neighbors kitchen (its a priest's house) where my mom or grandma cant get in. I used to hate all those gourd family veggies. Whenever i got fever, they used to force me to eat these milk curries, so that body temperature regulates.
My mom cook's these milk curries with fresh drumstick's n i jus love it. Here, once i tried with frozen one's n but i dint liked it.

So, here is my recipe for delicious yummyyyyyy sorakaya paluposina koora:

Sorakaya: 1 medium sized , peeled n chopped  
Onion: 1 medium sized, finely chopped
Green chili: 2 chopped
Dried Red chili: 2
Mustard seeds:1 tsp
Cumin seeds: 1tsp
Channa dal: 1 tsp
Milk: 1 cup
Water:1 cup
Turmeric: 1 tsp
Salt: to taste
Red chili powder: 1 tsp
Oil: 1tbsp
Garlic: 2 cloves, finely chopped
Drumsticks( if u want 4-5)

1) In a pressure cooker, heat oil n add red chili, channa dal. once dal turns color add mustard seeds n let them splutter. Add cumin seeds n  garlic and fry for 30 secs. Add onions n pinch of salt n fry for 5 mins or until onions turn pink color.
2) Now add turmeric,bottle gourd pieces and stir it. Add red chili powder, salt and water. Cook for 2 whistles and let it cool down or util pressure escapes ( U can cook in pan too but it takes very long time)
3) Still, if there is water, jus boil it for couple mins. ( Dont worry if u have little water).
4) Add milk  n stir it for 5 mins or until milk starts boiling.
5) Switch off n let it cool for 10 mins or until gravy thickens. U can add whipping cream , this gives rich taste to gravy.
 Enjoy this delicious curry with rice or chapathi.
