Upkari or stir fry can be prepared with almost all vegetables. Though the ingredients are same I wanted every upkari I prepare posted on my blog. A very healthy way to eat greens and vegetables.
3 ridge gourd
3-4 red chillies
1/4 teaspoon mustard seeds
4-5 curry leaves
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon coconut (optional)
Peel and cut ridge gourd into pieces.
In a pan heat oil and add mustard seeds. When mustard seeds starts spluttering add red chillies and curry leaves.
Add ridge gourd pieces and fry for couple of minutes.
Close the lid and cook ridge gourd. Add salt.
Serve with rice as side dish.
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Note: This vegetable oozes a lot of water. So add water only if needed.
When you peel ridge gourd do not throw away the skin. You can prepare chutney or tambli with the same.
