How to make Bharwa Parwal Sabzi Recipe -Stuffed Pointed Gourd Dry Vegetable
To begin making Bharwa Parwal Sabzi Recipe -Stuffed Pointed Gourd Dry Vegetable, wash and peel parwal. Remove stalk from both the ends and make a slit in the center lengthwise.
Do not cut the whole parwal. We need the parwal intact to fill in the stuffing.
With help of a small spoon or scoop, scoop out any large seeds from the parwal. Set them aside.
Next add the roasted peanuts into a mixer grinder and grind into a powder.
Into a mixing bowl add the besan, asafoetida, the ground peanut masala, turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder, red chilli powder, sugar, amchur powder, kasuri methi, salt to taste and mix well to combine.
Add mustard oil and a little water to make a crumbly mixture. Keep aside.
Fill the parwal with the prepared filling and keep aside. Be careful while stuffing the parwal and ensure that parwal does not break.
Into a preheated pan add oil and once the oil is hot add mustard seeds and cumin seeds.
Allow the seeds to crackle and then place the stuffed parwal in the pan. Add the remaining filling masala if any to the pan.
Sprinkle some water and cover the pan with a lid. Cook on a low heat until cooked through.
Half way through the cooking process stir the parwal once carefully to cook evenly on all sides.
Sprinkle some more water and cook covered till the parwal is soft and cooked through.
