Bottlegourd - Peanut Koottu

Tender Bottle-gourd -1
Roasted Peanut -1/4cup
Red chillies - 5 (adjust to your taste)

Dry roast the peanuts and red chillies on low heat for a minute or two. This helps to grind them coarsely. Use mortar and pestle (or pulse it in a mixie jar) and make it into coarse powder.

Wash and chop the bottle gourd into small pieces. Add them in a pan, sprinkle a tablespoon of water, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Bottle gourd will release some water, so stir it in between and take care the veggie is not getting burnt.

Once the veggie is cooked, add the peanut-redchilli powder, mix it well. Tasty and delicious stir-fry without a drop of oil is ready! Enjoy it with rice or roti.
