Bottle Gourd Chutney (Sorakaaya Pachadi)

This is very simple chutney with limited ingredients that can be done easily in a short period of time.

  • 1 cup Bottle Gourd Pieces (without skin)
  • 10 Green Chilies
  • ½ tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Sambar Powder
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • ½ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • A pinch of Asafetida (Inguva, Hing)
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • Salt

Heat oil in a pan and add bottle gourd pieces + cumin seeds + green chilies and sauté well for 5 minutes. Then add curry leaves + turmeric + asafetida + sambar powder and mix well. Keep the mixture on medium low flame for 5 more minutes and turn off.

Keep aside to cool. When the contents cool down, blend them into a fine paste by adding lemon juice and salt. Add very little water if needed.

That’s it!! Great tasting chutney is ready!! Enjoy this yummy chutney with either rice or chapathis.

Love your blog. I'm one of your regular readers but this is the first time i'm leaving a comment.
This looks delicious and reminds me of a Gentleman's Toe (kovakkai) chutney I eat and love at an andra restaurant. I'm sure you would know it. If you could post the recipe for it, I'll be glad!!
