Here is stepwise Lauki sabzi recipe.Hope you will try it and love it like we do.


1/2 kg bottle gourd , cut in cubes
1 onion , thinly sliced
2 tomatoes , chopped
4 green chillies , chopped
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoon coriander powder
Salt to taste
4 tablespoon clarified butter
1/2 cup coriander leaves , chopped
Water as required


Heat clarified butter in a pressure cooker. Add onions and green chilly and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Just let it translucent.
Add salt , turmeric and coriander powder. Mix well.
Now add tomatoes and add bottle gourd cubes just covering the tomatoes. Add 1/4 cup water and close the lid. Cook it for 1 whistle.
As soon as the pressure evaporates , open the lid and start cooking it on low heat till ghee comes out from edges.

Remove from heat and garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

Serve hot with chapati.

Note: You may also prepare it in an open pan or wok , it will take a bit more time to cook.
You may also use vegetable oil but I recommend to use clarified butter for better taste.
