  • To begin making Lauki Ka Salan Recipe prep all the ingredients and keep them ready.

  • Into a mixer grinder blend the peanuts, sesame seeds and grated coconut along with a little water to make a smooth paste and keep aside.

  • Make a puree of the tomato and keep aside.

  • Next take a kadai or a deep pan and heat oil. Add mustard seeds, methi seeds, curry leaves and allow it to crackle.

  • Once the mustard seeds crackle,  add the slit green chilies, chopped onions, ginger and garlic and saute the onions till they turn translucent and soft.

  • Stir in the tomato puree, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and give it a brisk boil. Add the bottle gourd, slices, tamarind water and 1/4 cup of addition water.
