This is Boda Kakarakaya in Telangana and Spiny Gourd in English

Spine gourd is very nutritious and we get them in rainy season only

There are a lot of fibers in this vegetable along with vitamin A and vitamin E

Spine gourd will also improve immunity

It can be cooked any way we want.

Here I will show you how to make spine gourd fry

I used 1/2 kg spine gourds here

To a bowl of water, add spine gourds

Remove the stems and boil for 8-10 minutes

Poke the vegetables with a fork to check if they are cooked completely

They can be crushed easily with hands if they are cooked

The seeds in it also could be used for the fry

But, if the seeds in the vegetable are red, then remove them since it means the spine gourd is ripe

Heat 1 1/2 tablespoon oil in pan

Add 1 teaspoon cumin seed and fry

then Add 1 chopped onion and fry

Close lid and cook till they become transparent

Then add 2 green chillies and fry

Also add 1/2 cup curry leaves, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste and mix

then Add the spine gourd pieces and close lid for a couple of minutes

This doesn’t need to be cooked for long time since the spine gourds are already boiled

Now add 2 teaspoons chilli powder, 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon coriander seeds powder, 1 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds powder, 1 1/2 teaspoon coconut powder and mix

Then add 1 teaspoon jaggery powder

Sugar can also could be used instead of jaggery powder

Cook for 6-7 minutes on low flame

Then Sprinkle coriander leaves and cut off the stove

Serve hot!
