Serves -(3-4)Ingredients needed
Ash gourd -3/4 cup
Cucumber - 1 cup
Raw plantain -1
Raw Mango - few pieces (5-6 medium size pieces)
Elephant foot yam -100 grams
Curd -2 tbsp
For the grinding
Grated coconut - 1 cup
Cumin seeds /Jeera - 1/2 tsp
Green chilli -3
For the seasoning
Coconut oil - 2-3 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Peel the skin and cut all the vegetables into 2 inch long piece.
Coarsely grind grated coconut, green chillies and cumin seeds. Keep it aside.
Since each vegetable needs different time for cooking, I cooked cucumber, plantain and ash gourd together in a pan separately adding salt needed for that alone. When it is half cooked, add chopped raw mangoes.Pressure cook the rest of the vegetables adding salt and turmeric powder for 2 whistles.You can cook in open pan also.The vegetables should be soft but not mushy. (use very less water and cook)
Add the grounded coconut paste and cook for a few minutes. Remove from flame.
Add curd and mix well. Check for salt. Season with coconut oil and curry leaves.
Note - You can skip curd, if you are adding raw mangoes or add according to the sourness you want. Since I love curd, I have added very less quantity in-spite of adding raw mangoes.
