It’s too obvious because it’s a post-festival meal and it has very basic and very simple menu. According to me simple meal at any time includes rice+rasam+a veggie stir fry and it’s a feel good meal for me and my family. The timing of this post is very appropriate as I am basically dying to comfort myself with some vegetable goodness after the last few days of living FESTIVE life.
So which is that vegetable that I am bringing in to?? It is this => huge and white ash gourd. Let me pause for while and think… which was my last ash gourd recipe in this blog space? It ways back to year 2012. Oh my gosh. Let me warmly welcome ash gourd stir fry in to my blog life then.
This one is authentic Udupi style recipe that has coconut, mustard seeds and red chilly masala. The peeled, cubed ash gourd is cooked till soft in the normal seasoning with salt and jaggery included. Finally it is topped with coconut masala. The ash gourd stir fry, hence prepared has unique taste and looks gorgeous enough to gulp over.
Though we relished this simple and comforting meal today, in the pictures it’s been propped with left over festive snack masala vada that reflects my festive food life.
