Upkari, prepared almost daily in Konkani households, is a flavourful way of stir-frying veggies, with a traditional tempering and addition of grated coconut. In this recipe, you will discover how to quickly and easily prepare Ridge Gourd Upkari. Ensure that the mustard seeds splutter well when you temper them, as that will bring out the full aroma and flavour of these magical little seeds. Serve the upkari hot and fresh with sambhar rice or rotis.
- Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan and add the mustard seeds.
- When the seeds crackle, add the dry red chillies, green chillies, curry leaves and asafoetida and sauté on a medium flame for 30 seconds.
- Add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
- Add the turai, salt and ¼ cup of water, mix well and cover and cook on a medium flame for 6 to 7 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the coconut and turmeric powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute.
