Sorekayi Bolu Huli / Bottle gourd curry

Sorekayi/ bottle gourd is one of the tasty and healthy vegetables, which can be used in many recipes. Bolu huli or watery curry is simple recipe I am going to share today. Preparation time is very less (approximately 20- 25 minutes).

Sorekayi bolu huli


Sorekayi/ bottle gourd- 1 and half cup (serves 2)

Tamarind- small lemon sized

Turmeric- a pinch

Green chilly- 3-4

Curry leaves

Garlic- 4-5 cloves

Mustard- 1/2 teaspoon

Coconut- Freshly grated, 4-5 teaspoon


Remove the skin and seeds,cut the bottle gourd into small pieces. Add enough amount of water and let it cook. While boiling add salt and tamerid water along with green chillies and turmeric. When the vegetable is cooked properly simmer it and add grated coconut and tamper it with curry leaves, garlic cloves and mustard in Ghee. (you can add red chilly powder if you want extra spice but check before you add it)

Now serve it with piping hot rice and papad or any other crisps. Its a Mangalore style bolu huli, we call it as ”Bendhi” in Tulu language.
