Sorakkai Kozhukattai Paal Kuzhambu Recipe by Archana’s Kitchen


  • In a pressure cooker, add the diced bottle gourd along with salt, 1/2 cup water and a pinch of turmeric.

  • Pressure cook the Sorakkai /bottle gourd for 2 whistles and release the pressure immediately by running the pressure cooker under water. Open the lid and keep aside. 

  • Place a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat, add the soaked chana dal along with the soaked water. Since the chana dal has soaked in warm water, it will be half cooked. 

  • Add the cooked sorakkai/bottle gourd pieces, along with the cooked water 

  • When dal gets half cooked add bottle gourd pieces along with the cooked water.

  • Next add the prepared kozhukattai small quantities at a time and let it cook for 10 minutes on a medium flame. 

  • Kozhukattais can stick in bottom, if there is not enough water, so adjust water quantity accordingly.

  • When kozhukattai gets cooked add grated coconut to it and stir it well.

  • Add in the sugar, milk and cook it for 2 more minutes and switch off the stove. (Instead of adding plain milk, you can also mix 1 tablespoon f rice flour with milk and add it to a curry to give thicker consistency)
