LAUKI-ALOO CURRY(Bottle Gourd- Potato) (Best with Roti/Chappati)

Lauki-potato Curry and a break!!

This is one dish which has the taste of both ofthe north and south cuisine mixed :) :)... doubtful right..he he he...i tried as an experiement and all my folks just loved it..even my neighbour friend.. And it best suits with chappati... lauki is one veggie which most of us dont favour much :).... but this curry will make you say.." yes lauki " !!! :D

I will be shifting to a new flat within this week and it will a time once i get my internet back and running... so hoping to see soon with another dish and  to all my bloggy friends... i m really not getting time to visit often and pass on my thoughts to each one of ur wonderful world of tastes..plz dont feel sad on that..i will soon try to be on the loop with u all :)

Lauki - 1/2 of a medium chopped into small cubes
Potato - 1 medium chopped into small cubes
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp

For Tempering:
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Curry Leaves - 2 twigs
Red Chilli - 1 or 2 no
Garam Masala - 1 tsp


In a pressure cooker, add in water with the powders and salt and put in the lauki and potato. Pressure cook till it is cooked. I cooked for 3-4 whistles.Once cooled, open and smash the mix with spoon nicely.

In a pan, Add in oil. Once hot, add in mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Once it starts spluttering, add in the curry leaves and red chilli. Saute for 10 seconds and add in the smashed curry into this. Add in the garam masala powder and cook for 2-3 mins over low flame and serve warm with roti/chappati :)..

Neetz ;)
