Bottle Gourd Skin Pachadi

Bottle Gourd Skin Pachadi

Summer is here and kids have started their vacation. So life has become so hectic by hindering me from taking care of my blog. I haven’t posted any recipe last week, so decided to post some recipe this week. Today’s recipe is from my hubby. He made this pachadi to go with rice and it tasted so delicious. 

Here is the recipe:

  • Skin of a whole Bottle Gourd
  • 1 large Tomato
  • 1 small Onion
  • 2 tsp Coriander Seeds (Dhaniyalu, Dhaniya)
  • ½ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 2 or 3 Garlic Cloves
  • ½ tsp Tamarind Pulp
  • A small piece of Ginger
  • 10 dry Red Chilies
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • A pinch of Turmeric Powder
  • A pinch of Asafetida (Inguva, Hing)
  • Salt
  1. Wash all the vegetables. Chop tomato + onion + garlic + ginger into medium sized pieces. Keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in the pan and add all the ingredients except tamarind pulp and salt. Sauté them well.
  3. Then transfer them to a plate and allow cooling down.
  4. Later add them to a blender jar and grind into a smooth paste by adding tamarind pulp + salt and little water. Don’t add too much water as the pachadi might become too watery.
  5. Transfer the pachadi to a serving bowl and enjoy with steaming hot rice. This also goes well with chapathis/dosas.

Wow Uma very delicious and also innovative recipe.I did not know that doodhi skin can be used since I usually discard the skin and make doodhi kootu or dry curry.
