Kovakka ( Ivy Gourd ) Curry
I never had a liking for Kovakka since I never tried it out. I picked this veggie to try something new for the week. My friend is fond of kovakka and I got this recipe from her. I thanked her so much for sharing this recipe since it turned out to be a very tasty dish. It goes well with rice as well as chapatti. Here it goes!!
- Kovakka (required quantity)
- ½ cup Onions finely chopped
- ½ cup tomato finely chopped
- ½ tsp turmeric
- 1 tsp red chili powder
- 2 tsp coriander powder
- Salt for taste
For tempering: Mustard, cumin and curry leaves
Cut the kovakka into round or lengthwise.
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, cumin, curry leaves to it. When the mustard starts to sputter add the onions and sauté until it turns to light brown color. Now add the tomato's and sauté for few minutes.
Add turmeric, red chili powder, coriander powder, salt and kovakka. Mix well and add required water and cover cook for 15 minutes.
Once the kovakka gets cooked and absorbed the flavor, cook uncovered for 2 minutes.
Serve hot with rice or chapatti.
