Bottle Gourd Kootu

     Its was a very heavy CYCLONE day with storm and rain, i dont feel like cooking but need to prepare, atleast to feed my lil one. I am helpless now. So, just searched the fridge, got a single bottle gourd. Sat infront of that and just surfing my RAM (BRAIN) what to prepare with that. Whoo, GOT IT finally. Just thought to try with "Toor Dhall". So, started to prepare my "SAVIOR" recipe :P I should say, that is a kid's delight with hot steamed rice. To my surprise, my lil one enjoyed thoroughly, NOT ONLY lil one, even the "BIG" (Great Sangeetha) & "VERY BIG" (Hubby) one :)


ALL YOU NEED:

Diced Bottle Gourd 1/4 kg
Boiled Toor Dhall 1 cup
Vertically Chopped Onion 2 Nos.
Chopped Tomato 2 Nos.
Smashed Garlic 6 Nos.
Curry Leaf 2 Twigs
Coriander Leaf 1 Twig
Red chilly 4 Nos.
Turmeric Powder Pinch
Mustard 1 spoon
Tamarind Syrup 1/4 cup (Optional)
Grated Coconut 1/4 cup
Oil To Garnish
Salt To Taste

METHOD:
     Keep a pan, heat a spoon of oil. Saute chopped onion and tomato. Then add diced bottle gourd by adding toor dhall, turmeric powder and required salt to it. Allow it to boil, until the bottle gourd gets cooked. Meantime, Take a fry pan, heat a spoon of oil, add mustard, smashed garlic, curry leaf, corainder leaf and red chillies. Pour the garnish items and grated coconut into the bottle gourd mixture. Let it boil for 5 minutes and serve hot with steamed rice or with rotis.
