Introduction of Spicy Bottle Gourd Chutney

Bottle Gourd Chutney is pure vegetarian food. Bottle gourd is a vegetable that is healthy & one of my favorites known as aanapakai in Telugu. It is a regular item at our home. It is definitely a new take on a familiar and abundantly available vegetable. The addition of coriander leaves and tamarind makes it slightly special with a unique flavor and adds a nutritional punch.

The advantage of using lentils in the preparation of this pacchadi is, it gives a thick texture (as bottle gourd tends to be watery) and also a richer and fuller taste. The inclusion of fresh coriander leaves not only gives a herby flavor but also works wonders in transforming the peel shade of bottle gourd into a vibrant shade. Serve with white rice and you have a vegan meal. Left over pacchadi works great as a spread over toasted brown bread. I hope you will enjoy this recipe. Let us get into this recipe quickly..!..
