Dudhi Chana Nu Shaak (Bottlegourd and Bengal Gram Curry)

I have bookmarked this dudhi chana nu shaak at Parita's Space...i have completely forgotten to try out but while going through few days back, i saw this dudhi chana nu shaak, since its a Gujarati speciality i wanted to try them during the weekend also wanted to send them to Nayna's event,we enjoyed this curry with rotis for our dinner..This curry is quite an easy side dish which get ready in less minutes since i prepared the whole cooking process in pressure cooker as Parita did..Thanks to Parita for sharing this easy breezy curry, its such a simple curry which goes terribly awesome as side dish along with rotis..Sending to Nayna's Flavours of Gujarat and to Priya's Bookmarked Recipes..

Dudhi Channa Nu Shaak

2cups Bottlegourd (chopped)
3/4cup Channadal
2tsp Oil
1tsp Cumin seeds
1tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Asafoetida powder
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Turmeric powder
1tsp Coriander powder
1tspCumin powder
1tsp Sugar
Salt
1cup Water

Heat oil in a cooker and fry the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida powder and turmeric powder, add the chopped bottlegourd pieces, saute for few seconds and add salt, sugar, red chilly powder, cumin powder and coriander powder, saute everything for few minutes..add the washed channa dal and water to the veggies..mix everything well and pressure cook for 5 whistles..

Enjoy this curry with rotis or rice..

  6. Dear Priya
    Very nice dish..actually any dish from parita, is always awesome.
    I had made it once..but added bit more sugar,,,you know we bongs have a bit of sweet tooth, generally.
    Add a bit of roasted jeera and red chili powder at the end , it will be great.
    Have a nice weekend
