Ingredients to make Potlakai Perugu Pacchadi (Curd and Bottlegourd chutney)

  • 1 small snake gourd - approximately 1 cup (finely chopped)
  • 1 Cup of curd
  • ½ cup grated coconut
  • 1 Teaspoon oil
  • A pinch of turmeric (optional)
  • salt to taste
  • For Seasoning -
  • 1 red chilli (broken into pieces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds (jeera)
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of oil
  • 1 pinch of asafoetida (hing)

How to make Potlakai Perugu Pacchadi (Curd and Bottlegourd chutney)

  1. Heat a small pan, add oil. Add the finely chopped snake gourd pieces. Fry for few seconds. Add salt and cover the pan.
  2. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes. Ensure the pieces do not get burnt, by checking in between. Once, the pieces are cooked, add grated coconut and mix well. Turn off the flame, and cool it.
  3. For seasoning, heat a small pan. Add jeera and mustard. Let the mustard seeds splutter. Add red chilli pieces. Add hing. Saute. If you prefer, add turmeric and put off the flame.
  4. Transfer the cooked bottlegourd pieces and coconut to a bowl. Add curd. Add the seasoning. Mix well.
  5. Serve the chutney with hot rice.

My Tip:

Savor this chutney when fresh. On storage it tends to lose its tastiness.
