Dondakaya / Kovakaay roast

Dondakaya/Kundru/Tondli/Kovakkay...this is one wonder vegetable, filled with so much taste.This is my hubby's favourite (ofcourse other than Bhindi fry) and he relishes it everytime I make this. Guess these are the only two veggies in the world that he eats without fussing, and I dont have to ask him to take a second serve of. Its very easy to make, here goes the recipe.

You will need :

Dondakayya / Kovakkai - 1 lbs
Oil - 1 tbsp
salt to taste
Red chilli powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp




Method :
Wash the dondakayya well and cut it lenghtwise. Keep aside. Now in a big pan, take some oil and allow to heat a bit. Once the oil is hot put in the dondakayya, salt, turmeic powder, and chilli powder. Mix well and cook it covered for 7-8 mins. Once the Dondakayya looks half done, remove the lid and roast it on medium flame for around 20 mins. Your dondakkaya roast is ready.


Serve hot with Chapati and rice. Mix this with some hot rice and eat. I am sure you will enjoy it !
