Sorakkai Thuvayal / Bottlegourd Chutney

Inspired by Ashaji's Chutney, I decided to make a chutney with Bottlegourd peels..It was a quick recipe which resulted in a delicious chutney and tasted best with dosai and adai dosai..It was also a way to make use of the bottlegourd peels without wasting them..The colour of the chutney was bright and appealing..


Bottlegourd peels - From one bottlegourd

Coconut - 1/4 cup

Dalia/Pottukadalai - 2 tablespoons

Tamarind extract - 1/4 tablespoon

Green chillies - 2

Yoghurt - 2 tablespoons

Few Curry leaves

Coriander leaves a little

Garlic - 1 small clove

Salt to taste

For seasoning

Mustard seeds,Urad dhall - 1 teaspoon each

Red chillies - 1


Curry leaves


Wash the peels and cook them with a little water until they turn tender..Grind it along with all the other ingredients adding a little water..Do the seasoning..

Pour the seasoning over the chutney and serve with dosai or idly..

Sending this off to VOW-Bottlegourd hosted by Pooja and Spicy Fiery Chutney event.
