Achari Aloo Parwal Sabzi Recipe is semi dry preparation of pointed gourd (parwal) and aloo in pickle spices. The pungency of mustard oil along with tomatoes and pickle spices gives this sabzi a unique flavour and makes it an excellent side dish for an Indian meal. You can make this sabzi in a pressure cooker when pinched for time, and if you find the fragrance of mustard oil too strong, you can make the same sabzi in regular cooking oil. Serve this with Phulkas, Matar Ki Puri and Dal Banjara for a wholesome weeknight dinner.

  6. Sprinkle sufficient water to cook the veggies but not make too much of a gravy, place the lid on the cooker and cook for 2 whistles.

  7. Turn the heat off and allow the cooker to cool down until the pressure releases naturally.

  8. Open the cooker, add salt, mix and simmer for another minutes so the excess water evaporates.
