BottleGourd Kootu

     You can spot this veggie very rarely in my kitchen. I dont like it much because of its plain taste eventhough it has high nutritional value. Click here to know. But once in a while will choose to prepare this. Since i got bored of the ususal patterns, this time thought of doing it in different way for our lunch meal using healthy Moong dhall. Wow ! what a tasty recipe it is. Really myself and my lunch mate enjoyed much and got appreciation toooo.... :)


ALL YOU NEED:
Bottle Gourd 1/4 kg
Chopped Onion 1 No.
Turmeric Powder Pinch
Curry Leaf 1 Twigs
Moong Dhall 1/4 cup
Mustard 1 spoon
Salt To taste
Oil 1 spoon

To Grind
Grated Coconut 1/2 cup
Green Chilly 3 Nos.
Cumin Seeds 1 spoon

METHOD:
     Pressure cook Moong dhall by adding pinch of Turmeric Powder and Salt for a whistle of 3 o 4. Let it sit for a while. Keep a pan, heat a spoon of oil. Allow mustard to splutters, now add on the curry leaf, chopped onion, do a saute. Now add on the sliced Bottle Gourd and pour the grinded paste and pressure cooked Moong Dhall. Allow to boil until raw smell goes off. Now, serve hot.
