Bottle Gourd Coconut Milk Curry

Simple bottle gourd curry with step by step photos. This is a very very simple curry, that can be done in just 15 mins with very few ingredients. Cooking in coconut milk gives this curry it’s yummy taste. Cumin powder gives nice aroma and flavor, and green chillies give the spiciness. I tasted this at my friend’s house. I really liked it, especially because it tastes good and easy to make.

This side dish is a perfect combination with rice with dal or with rotis, chapathis, pooris, jowar roti or millet rotlas.
