Sorakaya - Tomato Pachadi ~ Bottle Gourd - Tomato chutney

It has been a while since I posted chutney recipes and so here we go with an interesting flavored chutney made with bottle gourd and tomato. Serve this with hot steamed rice and ghee. :)

1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp cumin seeds, garlic,
4 green chillies
a pinch of asafoetida
1 cup grated bottle gourd
A pinch of turmeric
1 tomato, chopped
Salt to taste
a small marble sized tamarind
For tadka - 2 tsp oil, 1/2 tsp each - mustard seeds & urad dal (split, skinned blackgram), curry leaves

* Heat 1 Tbsp oil and add cumin seeds. When they start to brown, add chillies and saute them for few seconds. Then add bottle gourd, asafoetida and turmeric. Mix and cook until the raw smell of the gourd disappears. Then add tomato, tamarind and salt. Cook covered until tomato turns mushy. Turn off the stove and let cool.
* Grind the mixture to a coarse paste.
* Heat oil in a small pan and add the tadka ingredients. When uraddal starts to turn reddish, remove and add it to the ground chutney.

This goes to Priya's Veggie / Fruit a month event - guest hosted by Raji with the theme Bottle gourd this month.

A good idea. Most of the people do not add Sorakaya except in dals, kootu, or Sambhar.

The tangy tomato, hot chillies ,and the sweet sorakaya , all make this a wonderful combo, for irce or for chapati.
one can add more chillies or less, as per taste. A convenient one, for all palettes.
