Shukto

Ingredients to make Shukto

  • Bitter Gourd – 100 gms
  • Brinjal – 100 gms
  • Green Plantain - 100 gms
  • potato 100 gms
  • Drumstick 2
  • Bori (urad dal Dumplings) - 7 to 8
  • ginger paste 1 teaspoon
  • mustard Paste 11/2 teaspoon
  • cumin Powder 2 teaspoon
  • Green chilli 2
  • Milk - 1/2 cup
  • ghee 1 teaspoon
  • mustard Oil - 1/4 cup
  • Panch Phoron Powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Radhuni - 1 teaspoon
  • sugar - 1 teaspoon

How to make Shukto

  1. Cut all the vegetables in elongated manner and make pieces of drumsticks.
  2. We use “Bori” in sukto. Bori is nothing but dumplings made of urad dal paste which is sun dried and used in curry after frying.
  3. Now heat oil in a pan and fry each vegetable separately with salt.
  4. Put all the fried vegetables together and add ginger paste, cumin powder, sugar and green chillies. Stir well, then add water and put it in a pressure cooker for 1 or 2 whistles or cook them covering with a lid.
  5. Once the pressure is released, take oil in a pan and season with radhuni seeds or panch phoron & dry red chillies.
  6. Add mustard paste and saute it. Now pour the boiled vegetable soup & fried dumplings into it and let it boil for 2 minutes.
  7. Add milk and lower the flame. Switch off the gas and add ghee & panch phoron powder. Serve this curry with plain rice.

My Tip:

Panch phoron can be used if radhuni is not available. Panch phoron contains fennel seeds, fenugreek, cumin, nigella seeds, radhuni. Radhuni can be replaced with mustard seeds in panch phoron.
