Bottle Gourd (Sorakaaya) Perugu Pachadi

This is a very simple recipe that can be done within 10 minutes. It tastes so delicious and goes very well with rice or chapathis.


  • 1 cup Curd/Yogurt
  • ½ cup Bottle Gourd Pieces (without skin)
  • ½ tsp red Chili Powder
  • Few Curry Leaves
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • Salt


Boil bottle gourd pieces either in pressure cooker or microwave.

If using microwave: add these pieces to a microwave safe bowl, pour ¼ cup water, cover and microwave for 5 minutes or until the pieces appears cooked.

Whisk yogurt until smooth, add turmeric + chili powder + salt. Mix well and keep aside.

Heat oil in a small pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add cumin seeds and curry leaves and fry well. Add this to the prepared yogurt mixture. Mix well.

Finally add the boiled bottle gourd pieces and mix well. Adjust salt. Let it stand for half an hour before eating it with rice/chapathi.

It tastes so delicious. Yummy!!

I love the texture of the dish already. I'm a yogurt person and I love creamy food. The ingredients are simple and can be easily find. It's hard to find some of the middle eastern spices in my city.
