Place the chopped bhendi and bottle gourd pieces,green chilli slits in a pan,add tamarind paste and 1 glass of water,and keep for boiling on the stove.Meanwhile prepare the seasoning with oil, mustard and methi seeds along with redchilli slits seperately in another pan,and add in to the pan where the chopped vegetables are boiling in tamarind water.Also add curry leaves and some kothmeer,in the meanwhile mix butter milk along with besan powder and keep aside..After the vegetables are cooked,add besan mixed butter milk to it.
Add salt and let it boil in low flame or else if it is in high flame it may spill over..After the butter milk is boiled for 10 to 15 min in low flame ,switch off the stove and add the prepared ava mixture to the majjiga pulusu..Beware if ava is added without switching off the stove ,directly for boiling it will turn bitter,so only add it after it is switched off.
Totally it will take more than half an hour to cook this dish,but it is yummy..Garnish with kothmeer..
