Beerakaya Besan Curry

This is a simple recipe made my me many times at home. Its taste yummy. If you like besan/pitlai, you will also like this recipe. Here goes the recipe:


Onion - 1 small
Beerakaya (Ridge gourd, Turai) - 1 - 2 peeled and chopped. (make sure you taste them to check if they are not bitter
Oil - 3-4 spoons (or less also is ok)
Cumin seeds - Jeera - 1/2 tea spoon
Chickpea flour (Besan) - 1-2 tablespoons
Green chillies/Red chilli powder - use which ever taste you like
Salt to taste
Tomato - small (optional)

Method of preparation

Take a kadai and add oil to it. Once kadai is heated add cumin seeds to it. Add onions to it and fry till translucent. This may take a minute. Add Beerakaya and tomato (optional) to it. Add red chilli powder and salt at this point and cover and cook for couple of minutes. The curry will have some water formed because of beerakaya and tomato. Now add Besan to it. If needed add more besan to remove all the extra water. your curry is ready and garnish with coriander and serve.
