Sorakaya Pala Pindi Mirayam

This is a Andhra special curry. My Mom was born and brought up in Hyderabad so she is not too much into Andhra dishes. I got this recipe from my MIL, as Abhi wanted to eat it. It was indeed tasty it had jaggery which gave a slight sweet taste (kammani), pepper added the spice, the powder gave a nice gravy to the curry.


Sorakaya /lauki- 1
Milk - 1/2 Cup
Salt - To taste
Jaggery- 2 tbsp

Pepper Powder - 1 tsp
Rice-2 tsp
Dhanya- 1tsp
Chana Dal - 2 tsp
Red Chilli - 2
Dry Coconut - 1 tsp
Menthulu-1/4 tsp

Sesame seeds - 1 tsp
Chandal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 10
Hinge- A pinch
Oil - 3 tbsp


Take all the ingredients mentioned under the powder heading and dry roast them and make a very fine powder
Steam cook the sorakaya/Lauki
Add the thadka and add in the steam cooked sorakaya, and jaggery
Add in the powder and allow it to cook
Pour boiled milk and remove it, but I allow it to cook for some time
