How to make Doodh Dudhi Recipe- Bottle Gourd In Milk Curry
To begin with Doodh Doodhi, peel and slice the doodhi into cubes or semi circles or round, as per your choice.
Now heat oil in a Kadhai and add the cumin seeds. As soon as it crackles, add salt, red chilly powder and turmeric powder to the oil.
Cook it for about 2-3 minutes and then add the doodhi and mix it properly. Make sure that the doodhi is covered with the masala. Now cover the kadhai and let it cook for about 4-5 minutes.
After 4-5 minutes, when the doodhi becomes soft and tender, add half of the milk to the kadhai and cook it for more 2-3 minutes. Once the milk evaporates, add the remaining milk and cook till the doodhi is cooked properly and the gravy is thickened and creamy.
Take out the dish in a serving bowl and garnish it with chopped coriander.
