There cannot be a more versatile veggie than lauki/bottle gourd. You can cook it the way you want and it’ll still taste yummy.
You can make it with an ideal tomato curry recipe. You can serve it with roti chapati and rice for lunch and dinner or make it an Easy Dry Lauki Ki Sabji preparation that can be used to be served with puri or with parathas.
Lauki ki sabji is typically made in both dry and gravy versions and but this recipe that I am posting today belongs more towards the north Indian curry version.
This preparation contains lauki, potatoes, tomato and ginger with tempering of cumin and curry leaves. You can add an onion but that’s optional. Just throw in some salt, turmeric and red chilly, and your tangy lauki ki sabji curry is ready.
The Tangy Lauki aloo ki sabji recipe preparations is basically a simple and everyday gravy based made prepared with diced bottle gourd and potatoes in a tomato-based puree.
Lauki/bottle gourd can additionally be further used in a wide range of need-based preparations as well as fish recipes for which you can refer to the Masor Tenga (Assamese Fish Curry) Fish & Lau Recipe that has already been published on our website.
Lauki/bottle gourd is mostly bland in its taste, so if you want to enjoy the lauki aaloo ki sabji then you should try to make it a little tangy and spicy because unless it is so it will not give you that desired taste.
The preparation can be used by people who are fasting by replacing the salt with rock salt and omitting onion from the preparation.
Try variating the garnish between coriander and mint at different times to enjoy the individual flavours of coriander and mint leaves. You can alternatively use dill leaves also to get a variation in taste.
Though I am not a very big fan of lauki or bottle gourd I grew up eating this Tangy Lauki aloo ki sabji recipe preparation that my mother used to make in summers. Trust me the tangy taste used to turn this humble vegetable into the most sought after one in my house.
Mom used to sometimes serve Tangy Lauki aloo ki sabji recipe with rice or with khichdi. And either ways it would taste yummy.
