Side dish: Dal recipe with Lauki/ Sorakaya/ Bottle Gourd

Servings: 10

Duration: 30 mins

Any Indian meal contains Dal, curry, rice, roti and curd it’s so authentic and traditional to have a meal with curries and it gives you so much satisfaction with happiness. All these curries which I was prepared are the same process following from many generations and learnt from others like grand-grand parents. It’s like a chain process and love to know more and more from them.

Curry is a side dish either wet/ dry prepared out of vegetables/ leafy vegetables. It should be cooked and make sure it contain some amount of nutrients in it for good health diet. You can dip roti in curry and eat, you feel the flavours of it really delicious πŸ˜‹

In South India it’s common recipe and should be a side dish in every meal, this Dal suits with any rice/jeera rice/ fresh hot rice with ghee if you like to have it with any phulka/ Roti then it’s great combination πŸ‘

  4. This looks delicious! Can any squash be substituted for the bottle gourd? I am very curious about what hing is, as I have never heard if it before:)

      1. Perfect, thanks for letting me know. It’ll take me a while to find all the ingredients (sadly French supermarkets aren’t well stocked for ‘foreign’ cookery) but I definitely intend to try it and will keep you posted on the result!
