Kovakkai (Ivy gourd) poriyal

>> Sunday, February 28, 2010


I  rarely cook this tiny little kovakkai poriyal.  SP & I like to have this with sambar rice & rasam sadham.  I make it very simple with just few ingredients yet it taste delicious.  Addition of tomato is optional & this time I just added 1/2 smashed tomato at the end.  It taste simply awesome !!

Ingredients :
  1. Kovakkai (Ivy gourd) - 300 gms
  2. Oil - 1 tbsp
  3. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  4. Urad dal - 1 tsp
  5. Curry leaves - 1 tbsp
  6. Vadagam - 1 tsp
  7. Onion - 1 no
  8. Tomato - 1/2 no (optional)
  9. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  10. Chilly powder - 1 tsp
  11. Corriander powder - 1 tsp
  12. Salt to taste
Direction to cook :

1.   Cut the kovakkai & keep aside.

2.   Heat oil in the pan, temper the mustard seeds, urad dal, curry leaves & vadagam.

3.   Add the finely chopped onion & saute till golden brown in color. 

4.   Add turmeric powder, salt, chilly powder & kovakkai.  Cover & cook till tender.

5.   Finally, smash the tomato & add it to the poriyal.  Cook for further 4 more mins. 


Serve with rice.

Adding vadagam to it sounds different... I have to make it a practise to eat this veggie...
