Sorakaya Mukkala Pachadi ~ Bottlegourd Chutney

Usually I make routine ground chutney with Bottle Guard ( known as Louki or Kaddu in Hindi). But this time this recipe is coming from my Mom's Kitchen. When I was talking to mom one day, she said she made Sorakaya Mukkala Pachadi in the line of Dosakaya Mukkala Pachadi and it turned out good. As this is one way of eating Raw Bottle Guard, I jumped up and tried the recipe on the same day for a Pot Luck Gathering, no body guessed that this is Raw Bottle Guard... Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Bottle Guard ( Sorakaya) - 1/2 medium
Tomato - 1 medium
Green Chili - 5
Garlic - 5
salt - 1 tsp
Cumin Seeds -  1 tsp
Tamarind -  1 tsp

Oil - 1 Tbsp
Cilantro - 1 tsp

Preparatory Steps:
Peel the Bottle Guard, cut into length wise and remove the seeds. Chop it into small pieces.


  1. Heat the Oil in the non-stick pan. Once the oil is hot, add the cumin seeds, garlic, green chili. 
  2. As the Green chili starts wilting, add the tomato pieces to the pan. 
  3. Keep the heat in the medium and Let it all come together. Add 1 tsp of Tamarind Paste to Pan. 
  4. Reduce the Heat to low and let the tomato become thick like puree. 
  5. Switch off the Heat, let it cool and Grind it in mixie along with salt. 
  6. Finally add the chopped bottle guard pieces to the grind paste and top with finely chopped cilantro. 

Optional Step: To add more flavor, Prepare Indian Tempering and add it to Chutney. 

Serving Tip: Serve with Hot Rice and Ghee ( Clarified Butter) to treat your taste buds.
