Tuvar and Turai Curry

I bought this turai(Beerakaya, Ridge Gourd) fresh from indian store. But problem was the curry becomes very less unless combined with something else, or if you have large quantity. This was one of recipes tried in the potluck. I liked the taste and wish to share it with everybody.

Turai - 1 long
Tuvar - 1-2 cups (I used one packet of frozen)
Mustard seeds - 1 table spoon
Cumin seeds - 1 table spoon
Chilli Powder - according to taste
Salt to Taste

Method of Preparation

1. Clean, Peel the skin and chop the turai. For tuvar you can either chop it or make small pieces by hand(if fresh).

2. Take a kadai, add mustard seeds. let them splutter and then cumin seeds.

3. Add Turai and tuvar cleaned to the kadai. Add chilli powder and Salt also.

4. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or until both the vegetables are cooked. The curry is ready.

You can serve this curry with either hot rice or roti.

Tuvar - Goru chikkudu kaya (Telugu)
Turai - Beerakaya (Telugu), Ridge Gourd

I know! I ususally buy 2-3 Turai and when cooked, you get such small quantity! But very tasty. Curry looks great. Enjoy!:))
