Some veggies are very healthy but you are at a loss of ideas to include them more often in your diet. Turai is a typical example. Although rich in nutrients, it is rarely focused on because of its mushiness and lack of intrinsic flavour. Here is a recipe that can change the scenario. Perked up with peppy tomato pulp and a variety of spice powders, Masalewali Turai is a quick and easy subzi that will top the culinary charts at home!
- Heat the oil in a non-stick kadhai and add the cumin seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
- Add the turmeric powder, ginger, green chillies and 1 tbsp of water and sauté on a medium flame for a few more seconds.
- Add the tomato pulp and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the coriander-cumin seeds powder, chilli powder and dried mango powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute.
- Add the ridge gourd and salt and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 8 minutes or till the ridge gourd is cooked, while stirring occasionally.
- Serve hot garnished with coriander.
