Lauki ke chilke ki Sabzi/Chutney with Peanuts (Bottelgourd Peels Sabzi)

Lauki (Bottle Gourd) also known as Dudhi has many nutritional attributes, high in fiber and low in calories. It is rich in B complex vitamins and minerals like calcium, phosphorous and iron. It provides many health benefits too.
Mostly I throw the peels of lauki while making the curry/sabzi from it, but I forgot that the peels of lauki has the same nutritional value and hence should  be used every time instead of thrown. This sabzi/chutney is so easy, delicious and hardly took 10-12 minutes to cook.
For grinding:
  • 1 big bottle gourd's  Peel (skin)
  • 2 tablespoon peanut powder
  • 1-2 green chilies
  • 2 tablespoon dry coconut shredded
  • 2 tablespoon cilantro
  • salt to taste
Other Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup Peanut seeds
  • 1 tablespoon Oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 1 pinch Asafetida (hing)
  • 2 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 cup gram flour (besan)
  • 2 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  1. Grind the ingredients listed for grinding to a coarse paste, add little water if required.
  2. Heat the oil, add Mustard seeds, Cumin seeds and Asafetida.
  3. Then add peanuts and sauté it until it becomes slightly red.
  4. Next add sesame seed and sauté it for few seconds.
  5. Then add turmeric powder and grinded paste to it, mix it and stir fry it for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Next add Besan (gram flour), mix well, cover it and cook for few minutes.
  7. Add lemon juice and garnish with cilantro.
  • You can use this as chutney too.
  • The same way, you can make the sabzi of Turai (Ridge Gourd) Peels.
