Chana dal Lauki ki Sabji



Preparation time: 10-15 mins

Cooking time : 10 mins

Ingredients :

  • Bottle gourd / Lauki - 1 medium sized chopped in cubes (without the seeds)
  • Chana dal - 1/4 cup
  • Mustard / cumin seeds - 1/2 tspn
  • Dhaniya powder - 1 tspn
  • Turmeric - 1 pinch
  • Garam Masala - 1/4 tspn
  • Chilli powder - 1/2 tspn
  • Salt  - 1 tspn
  • Oil - 2 tbspn
  • Water - 400 -500 ml

Steps :

  1. Soak Chana dal in water while chopping the bottle gourd.
  2. In a pressure cooker add oil and once it is little hot add cumin/mustard seeds and spices ( make sure the spices dont get burnt if the oil is too hot ). Quickly stir the spices and while adding chana dal & water .
  3. Add bottle gourd and pressure cooker on medium low flame for 2-3 whistles ( approx 15 mins). 
  4. Once the Chana dal Lauki is done , you can also temper it with 1 tspn oil & chopped 1 clove of garlic for additional taste.
Note : Eventhough we are adding more chilli powder & salt here while cooking, it will taste mild once pressure cooked.

Garnish with Coriander leaves - Chana dal Lauki ki sabji and serve with either Roti or Rice !
