Dondakaya kura/Coccinia curry

Dondakaya is rich in beta-carotine. Dondakaya is very tasty when deep fried. This takes a lot of oil for frying. Taking lot of oil is also  not good for health so we try different varieties. It can be combined with coconut, peanut powder and ginger garlic. The recipe I am going to mention is very simple. 

Ingredients:

Dondakayalu(coccinia)-500grms
Onions-100 grms
Garlic cloves-5
Oil-2tbsp
Salt- to taste
Turmeric powder-1tsp
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Cumin seeds-1tsp
Black gram-1tsp
Bengal gram-1tsp
Red chillies-2
Curry leaves-a few
Red chilli powder-1tsp
Garam Masala powder-1tsp

Procedure:

Cut dondakayalu/coccinia in round shape .
Chop onions.
Peel the skin of garlic and cut them into small pieces.
Heat oil in a kadai put mustard seeds, cumin seeds, black gram, bengal gram, curry leaves and red chillies. 
When they start splutter add garlic and onions. Saute them till the onions becomes soft. Now add dondakayalu/coccinia and fry them for about 5 minutes. If necessary add a little water. Add salt and turmeric powder. Cook for 5 minutes or till dondakaya or coccinia softens.
Cook on a low-medium flame so that donkayalu and onions won't burn.  Once dondakayalu cooked add  red chilli powder and garam masala powder. We can check whether dondakayalu cooked or not by their texture. They will loose their moisture and have a wrinkle appearance. Serve this curry with hot rice.
