AAKAKARAKAYA / TAESEL GOURD CURRY

TAESEL GOURD/AAKAKARAKAYA CURRY
Aakakarakaya,tastes very much when onion is added to it.Instead of akakarakaya fry which consumes more oil,we can do curry which needs less oil.
Materials:
Chopped akarakaya pieces 2 cups
Finely chopped onion -1 cup
Salt
Chillie powder 1 tsp
Dhania jeera powder
1/2 tsp optional
Oil 1 tbsp
Method:
Place a pan on the stove,and add 1 tbsp oil to it.After the oil is heated add chopped aakakarakaya pieces and fry till light brown in med flame with a lid covering it.Frequently stir it. After it is turned to a bit brown add finely chopped onion and fry it with covering with a lid.The flame should be from low to medium according to ,but never in high flame.Due to the onion the aakakarakaya pieces turn soft as if for curry ,then when it is cooked add salt and chilli powder,dhania powder(optional) and switch off.For tenderness cook the entire curry completely  covering with a lid. Serve hot with steamed rice and dollop of ghee..
