Bottle Gourd & Shrimps Curry

Bottle Gourd & Shrimps Curry

Soraikkai-eral Thokku:

Okay, as I confessed to you all earlier…giving up meat and seafood is difficult for me, but including more veggies sounds like a perfect option:) Combining hint of meat or seafood to certain vegetables is like magic! The resulted dish turns completely out of this world, very delectable you know! So, here you go, one such amazing amalgamation.


Bottle gourd chopped 1 large bowl
Shrimps 6-10 pieces
Green chili 1 chopped
Garlic 4 cloves minced
Onion 1 small chopped
Tomato 1 small chopped
Turmeric 1/4 spoon
Chili powder 1 spoon
Mustard seeds 1/4 spoon
Cumin seeds 1/4 spoon
Curry leaves few
Sesame oil few spoons.


In a wide wok, heat oil. Add the tempering spices and wait till they pop.

Further add chilies, garlic, onions and tomatoes. Add salt, turmeric and chili powders too.

Now, add the veggies and shrimps, Cover and cook till tender.

Serve to go as a side dish for rice or chappathi.

    Hi Malar
    Bottle gourd? Had no idea what this was and I found out to be a squash used a lot in southern Chinese cuisine. Awesome recipe ♥

    Prawn with lauki, I do it always Its typical mangalorean recipe, But, more like a thick gravy. This one looks dry, very new for me :)

  19. Hey Malar.. seem to have missed quite a lot of posts here.. this bottle gourd and non-veg combo is completely new for me!! I agree it is great to include some veggies in non-veg dishes. This looks great! Thanks!
