Often there are times when we feel cooking is a drudgery. It can be made simple by a bit of planning ahead. In this video I have shown how to store Bottle gourd’s different components, for use in day to day cooking.

I buy every week either a Bottle Gourd or a Pumpkin or an Ash Gourd. I cut them as shown in this video and store. Remember not to buy all the three at one time. Else the very purpose of making cooking simple, becomes drudgery!!!  In this process you would have on hand home processed ready to cook three vegetables for 24 X 7 in the fridge.

In breaking coconut video I have shown how to store coconut also.

With these ingredients in hand, preparing a Sambar, Gavial, Molakuttal, Aloo Kaddu Torkari, Sorkaya Kooralu, Gummdikaya Koora etc just becomes so easy. You would have an option to prepare a large variety of dishes within a few minutes. 

I give importance in using the skin and seeds of these vegetables also, which is ground to paste and used in gravy preparations, to thicken the dish and give body to the curry. This adds natural fiber to our food. Example Sambar, Aloo Dum, etc

Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
