Lauki ki Sabji
इस व्यंजन को हिन्दी में पढ़ें
Method of preparation
- Scrap the outer skin of the bottle gourd( lauki), wash, and cut it into half inches cubes. (shape does not matter, it is just to get an idea). We need about 4-5 cups lauki chunks .
- Heat ghee/oil in a wok. Add cumin seeds, when seeds change the color, add asafoetida, and turmeric, fry for 10 seconds on low flame/heat. Now add bottle gourd (lauki) peices, salt, red chili powder, and coriander powder. Mix well and cook till lauki gets tender . Takes about 14-15 mins. (Lauki can also be made in the pressure cooker, in that case take one whistle.)
- Now add garam masala. Mix well and turn off the heat.
- Add lemon juice/ yogurt at the time of serving.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
Serve with Roti / Paratha.
If you like tomatoes, it can also be added in this vegetable preparation.
I like to make this vegetable in ghee, as the vegetable gets nice aroma of ghee.
Do not add yogurt in very hot vegetable; yogurt might split..
