BM #93 Week 4 Day 3 - 

To conclude this series of mini meals for this week, check my favorite no onion no garlic platter of the week. This platter features Yellow Cucumber Dal, Drumstick Rasam, Corn Methi Stir Fry, Lauki Mango Chutney, Rice and Yogurt. The bonus in this platter is the Uppu Mirapakaya.

I remember when I made this platter, I was cleaning out the fridge and found half of a small bottle gourd, and one yellow cucumber. Since the bottle gourd wouldn't be enough for a sabji, I looked into my freezer for more veggie options when my little one picked up corn for a stir fry. So I had to come up with the chutney and make a meal out of the veggies on hand.

These are the regular components in an everyday meal at my mom's place even today. Sambar is a rarity for some reason. 

Ingredients - 

Lauki cubed 2 cups
Tomato cubed 1/2 cup
Salt, Turmeric, Green Chilies as needed
Raw Mango peeled and cubed 1/2 cup
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Chana Dal 2 tsp, Urad Dal 2 tsp, Methi Seeds a pinch, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp, Asafotida 1/8 tsp, Curry leaves few, Coriander seeds 1 tsp, Sesame seeds 1 Tbsp)

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients. After the dals brown and the mustard seeds splutter, saute green chilies.

Add the chopped lauki and tomatoes, mix well. Cover and let them cook through. 

Sprinkle salt and turmeric. Mix well. Remove from heat. Add the cubed raw mango. Add coriander leaves if using.

Grind into a fine paste.

Serve with steaming hot rice and ghee!


Preparation Time 20 minutes
Serves 7-8
