Kovakka thoran - Ivy gourd Stir fry

One more entry to Vazhayila's collection of Vegetable thorans' :)... I know many of you might be thinking what is with me and thorans? Its just that N loves thoran and wants it every other day. In a way i m happy that he likes this so much , because for me its the most easiest dish to make :). a few minutes of chopping, ( seconds in my Food processor) , mixing and cooking, and the thoran would be ready under 10 minutes.



Ingredients:-
Kovakka/ivy guard - 1/2 lb
Grated coconut - 1/4 cup
Green chili slit lengthwise - 3-4
Garlic chopped - 2 cloves
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Curry leaves - 7-8
Small onion chopped - 2 tsp
Mustard seeds
Oil
Salt to taste

Method:-
  • Clean and Slice the ivy gourd/Kovakka into thin round slices.
  • In a bowl combine the sliced kovakka, green chili, crushed garlic,grated coconut , and turmeric powder and salt , mix it well with your hands.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. 
  • When they splutter add chopped onion and curry leaves and fry for a minute or two. 
  • Add the kovakka mix and toss it well.
  • Sprinkle 2-3 tspns of water ,Keep everything to the centre and cook it covered for 6-7 minutes, or until it runs dry. 
  • Remove the lid and stir fry it for another 3-4 minutes. Remove and serve warm
Notes:-
--You can add a small piece of crushed ginger , if you like the gingery taste in your stir fries
Cheers
