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..
