Bottle Gourd Milk Curry

Bottle Gourd/Sorakaya - 1, peel, wash and cut into 1 inch cubes
5 curry leaves
2 Red chillies, cut them into 1 inch pieces
1/4 tbsp mustard seeds
1/4 cup of milk
salt as per taste

In a bowl, add bottle gourd pieces and enough water and boil/microwave for 10min or till the pieces are soft but not mushy. Strain and keep aside
In a pan, add 1 tbsp oil and when it is hot, add mustard seeds, red chilli flakes, curry leaves and fry till mustard seeds splutter
Add boiled bottle gourd pieces and mix well and cook for 2min
Now change the flame to high, and add little milk to the curry and stir well and cook till the milk evaporates. Add some more milk and stir well and cook till the milk evaporates. Continue this process till all the milk is done. This helps the bottle gourd pieces absorb the flavour of milk
Add enough salt and stir well and switch off the fire. Note to add salt only at the end or it curdles the milk

Goes well with Roti but also can be eaten with white rice
