Once it is reasonably hot, add cumin seeds, add turmeric powder, chilli powder.
Then go chopped tomato and lauki along with a cup of water to be pressure cooked.
And then within minutes, your ultimately delish side dish is ready to be served with parathas.
The flavors of tomato and lauki blend so very well that you won’t be able to stop with just one serving of this luscious Lauki Tamatar Sabzi.
With a fresh bunch of Lauki growing up in my home garden, these days, I never leave a chance to make Lauki Tamatar Sabzi whenever I reap one tender bottle gourd.
