Ridge Gourd in a Coconut-Garlic Masala

A dish made up on the spur of the moment by VK.  The garlicky/coconut/green chilies made the dish absolutely delicious.

  


Ingredients:

Ridge Gourd - 1 large - skin peeled - cubed - 150-200 gms
Onion - 1 sliced
Tomato - 2 chopped
Oil - 2 tbsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Jeera - 1 tsp
Turmeric - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves ( missing here - few)

Masala
Green chilies - 3-4 nos
Coconut - 4 tbsp
Garlic - 6 pods

Grind the ingredients for the masala and keep ready

Heat oil. Add the mustard allow to splutter.  And then the cumin seeds
Followed by sliced onion.  sauté,
And then the tomatoes  - till they turn mushy
And the turmeric and the ground masala.  sauté, again
Now add the cubed ridge gourd.  sauté,  and add some water ( very little - as the veggie has high water content)
Keep till cooked.  
Simmer further if you want a dry curry.  I liked it with a little gravy.
