      This is one of the easy recipes I learnt from my SIL here in SG. This is very very easy to prepare,yet makes an wonderful accompaniment for sambar rice or any other rice dishes.So I wanted to blog this recipe for long time. All the recipes I learnt from her are delicious but made with less effort! Try this with any stuffed parathas too,it would be nice…

  4. Yum--perfect for summer.We have a Konkani version for this which is called Kuvale[ash gourd] Sassam,only difference being,the ash gourd is cooked in a saucepan and instead of Jeera,Mustard seeds[sassam in Konkani]is added to the ground masala.Its been ages since I had this--your pics look great,this would be perfect with a spicy paratha!!
