Dudh Diye Lau - Bengali Bottlegourd Curry

I crossed this quick and easy breezy side dish with bottlegourd from Sandeepa's Bong Mom Cookbook, i immediately bookmarked this simple and quick bottlegourd curry from her space and tried out this delicious curry this weekend...I totally got hooked the simplicity of this wonderful looking curry, which tastes marvellous when served along with rotis as well as with rice...This dish goes for bottlegourd chunks cooked with milk along with simple spices..Obviously, its quite light,mildly sweet curry to enjoy for a simple lunch..Sending Flavors of Bengal guest hosted by Priya,event by Nayna..

dudh diye lau

3cups Bottlegourd chunks
1/4cup Milk
1tbsp All purpose flour
2tsp Ghee
1no Bayleaf
2nos Green cardamoms
1no Cinnamon stick
2nos Dry red chillies (broken)
1/2tsp Cumin seeds
1/2tsp Sugar
Salt

Take the bottlegourd chunks with salt but without water in a vessel..Once its starts cooking, the bottlegourd chunks release enough water..Cook until the water gets evaporates..Make a white paste with milk and all purpose flour..add this paste to the cooked bottlegourd chunks and mix gently..

Meanwhile heat the ghee, fry the bay leaf,cardamom,cinnamon stick,broken dry red chillies and cumin seeds, add this tempered spices to the cooking veggies,stir and cook for few minutes, finally add the sugar and salt to veggies, cook until the water gets evaporates..Serve it topped with grated coconut or crumbled fried papads..
