Made this curry and got the pictures a couple of weeks ago. They just remained, ignored till now. Ridge gourd/Chinese okra
is one vegetable which i did not like very much when I was back home. It was very tolerable, I could eat it once in a while, without making faces. But now I really really like it. I like it enough to make chutney out of the peel of ridge gourd. There will be a different post for it,
There are so many nice recipes that can be made this vegetable. This is just one of them. Simple, easy to make, minimum ingredients and mostly DELICIOUS.
Here comes the recipe.
Ridge Gourd/Chinese Okra/Beerakaya/Turia - 2, peeled and cubed
Tomatoes - 2 Chopped
Onion - 1 big, chopped
Red chilli powder
Curry leaves - 4 (Optional)
Oil- 1 Table spoon
Heat oil in a pan.
Add onions and curry leaves and saute.
Mix well and add chopped ridge gourd.
Cover and cook a little.
Add chopped tomatoes, salt, chilli powder.
Cover and cook till everything is cooked well.
There is no need to add water as water from tomatoes will be enough to cook.
