bitter gourd – 1no

hog plums – 5 to 6 nos

fresh grated coconut – ½ cup

jaggery grated 1&1/2 tbspn

urad dal 1 tspn

fenugreek seeds- 6 to 8 nos

coriander seeds – 1 tspn

dried red chillies – 5 nos

mustard seeds- ½ tspn

curry leaves – 2 sprigs

Groundnut oil - 3 tbspn

Salt to taste


Wash vegetables , slice the bitter gourd and keep aside. Smash the hog plum using a pestle so that its tanginess is released in the gravy. Boil the hog plums and bitter gourd slices in about 1 and half cup of water in a pot.

When they are half cooked, add in salt, jaggery and continue cooking. The jaggery helps in adjusting the bitterness of the bitter gourd and sourness of hog plums so add accordingly as per your taste .

Meantime prepare the ground masala. 

Method for the ground masala:

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a pan and add in fenugreek seeds, urad dal, coriander seeds, dried red chillies broken into pieces and fry them until the urad dal starts to brown.

Cool it down and then grind it along with grated fresh coconut into a smooth paste using as much water as required. When the veggies are almost cooked, add in the ground masala and mix well.

Add water as required to bring the curry to a medium thick consistency and bring curry to come to a boil. Simmer the curry for few minutes until the masala is well cooked and there is no raw flavour. Check and add salt as per your taste.

Remove the curry from the fire and now temper it.

Method for the tempering: 

Heat remaining oil in a tempering pan, add in mustard seeds. When they begin to splutter, add in curry leaves and let them sizzle for few seconds. Add the tempering to the curry and mix well.

Serve the curry hot with steaming boiled rice.
