Directions

  1. 1. Heat oil and crackle jeera. I use coconut oil as it gives a very distinctive taste and aroma to the whole dish.
  2. 2. Then add the curry leaves and slit green chillies and fry them for couple of seconds.
  3. 3. Add the cut bottle gourd. Add salt and turmeric to it and give it a good mix.
  4. 4. Now pour the milk and little bit of water to adjust the consistency of the gravy and boil the bottle gourd in it until it gets cooked.
  5. 5. Mix it occasionally while the vegetable is getting cooked and the milk gravy thickens.
  6. Serve it with rice and add a dash of more coconut oil on top of the gravy for that extra richness.
