Konkon Dudi Sukkem (Bottle Gourd)

I first had this konkon dudi sukkem at a restaurant in Dadar during one of my trips to Bombay. It tasted pretty good, a different way from how we normally cooked the konkon dudi at home. So this was my attempt at making it in a different way. It has become quite popular in the family with many having adopted it so I am sharing this konkon dudi recipe with you here. Hope you enjoy it.

Konkan Dudi (Bottle Gourd)
1 tspn mustard seeds
1 onion, cut fine
1 tomato, cut fine
1 green chilly, slit
3 tbspns grated coconut to garnish
A pinch of sugar
salt to taste
A pinch of turmeric powder
1 tbspn oil

  • Skin the bottle gourd and chop into 1/2" cubes.
  • Heat the oil and add the mustard seeds, allow to splutter.
  • Add the onion and fry for some time.
  • Add the tomato and continue frying for a couple of minutes.
  • Next put in the bottle gourd/konkon dudi cubes.
  • Add salt, sugar, green chilli and turmeric powder.
  • Add 2 tbspns of water if required.
  • Cook on simmer till the bottle gourd is done.
  • If there is excess water you may evaporate the same as you wish.
  • Take off fire and add grated coconut.
