Dudhi ki sabzi
There are some vegetables that never make it to our favourites’ list. Most gourds, especially the bitter gourd for obvious reasons, and also the bottle gourd for being so tasteless. DH is absolutely a non-fussy eater but gourds deter him too. When I tried out an experiment with the bottle gourd for my lunch, inspired by what our friend in Bangalore had made for us, it turned out so good, that it was entirely report-worthy and repeat-worthy. I made an effort to spare some for dinner, and when I gingerly served some to DH, he said – “Is there more of that??”. That moment, the poor dudhi had recorded it’s place in the annals of our household.
I must give due credit to an Andhra recipe which our friend had shared with me verbally. Since I couldn’t recollect much of it, what went into this recipe, were ingredients thrown in by intuition, in my own approximations. The idea of dudhi in a thick gravy is her traditional recipe though.
Before I share this zero-oil, tasteful wonder with you, I must announce that a good friend Manasvi has started his own food blog called – From the Bachelor’s Kitchen. As good ladies we must encourage a man’s efforts in the kitchen, shouldn’t we 😉
