Dish-A-Day: 05/26/2012 - Parwal Masala Curry

Prologue: Go here.

05/26/2012: Parwal Masala Curry - I keep seeing this vegetable in the Indian Grocery store a lot and always wondered how would they taste and what to make with it. Finally I bought them one day to try cooking them. Parwal looks so similar to Tindora and when I chopped them the inside also looked the same. So I made this Masala Curry that I usually make with Tindora. Surprisingly turned out really good.

1) Wash and chop 1/2 lb of Parwal into long thin pieces.
2) In a blender make a fine paste of 2 tsps of Coconut Powder (Dry or Wet), 2 tsps of Coriander Seeds, 1 tsp of Cumin Seeds and 1 tsp of Khas Khas / Gasagasalu.
3) In a pan heat 2 tsp of Oil, add 1 tsp of Mustard Seeds, 1 tsp of Cumin Seends, 2 Cloves and 1/2 inch piece of Cinnamon.
4) When the Spices start to sputter add 1 medium Onion finely chopped. Saute a little.
