Bara Hua Turiya (stuffed Ridge Gourd)
I was in luck the other day. I went to buy my weekly veggies and I spotted these lovelies. Itty Bitty Ridge gourds :) I immediately decided to stuff them (yumm yumm) but was wondering, do I do prawn or chicken? Hmm. Chicken won. I love Love love little individual parcels of food. Don't ask why I just do :)
You can make this from regular sized ridge gourd too. Just cut five inch pieces and follow the same steps of hollowing out. Just be vigilant about the spoon or melon baller going through the bottom. If you process your veg before you make your filling, use the insides in the filling too. Nothing goes to waste then. The insides do tend to go brown if they are kept on the counter for too long, so be quick!
I hope you enjoy this recipe. I normally serve it with dal and a side of rice or roti and pickle. Let me know how you liked it :)
