Turai pyaz ki subzi

Posted on August 3, 2009. Filed under: Diabetes/diabetic recipe, Subzi | Tags: , , |

Turai, a vegetable that is low in calories and carbohydrate, is combined with onion and flavoured with ginger and garlic to make a simple dish ideal for those of us who like simple flavours. Though the recipe says to use peeled turai feel free to use them unpeeled to take advantage of the fibre content present in the peel.
Serve this dish with hot phulkas and a salad.

Preparation Time : 10 mins.
Cooking Time : 25 mins.

Serves 4.

2 cups turai (ridge gourd), peeled and sliced
1 cup onion, sliced
½ teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
1 teaspoon chopped ginger
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1 green chilli, chopped
½ cup yellow moong dal (split yellow gram), soaked and drained
¼ teaspoon turmeric powder (haldi)
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1½ teaspoons oil
salt to taste
For the garnish
1 tablespoon chopped coriander
1. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds.
2. When they crackle, add the onions and sauté till they are lightly browned.
3. Add the ginger, garlic, green chilli and turai, mix well and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
4. Add the moong dal, turmeric powder, salt and approx. ½ cup of water.
5. Cover and cook over a medium flame till the turai and dal are soft.
6. Add the tomatoes and mix well.
7. Simmer for another 4 to 5 minutes till the tomatoes soften and serve hot garnished with the chopped coriander.
