Recipe Notes
  1. Don't chop the sorakkai in to tiny pieces as you do for other cooking it turns mushy very fast so cube it little bigger in size.
  2. Instead of pressure cook you can cover and cook in the pan after adding spice powders, it takes 10 more minutes to cook.
  3. Adding lauki skin and seeds are up to your choice.
  4. You can add two green chili's to this curry.
