Steps Beerakaya Kura Andhra Style:

Prep Work:

  • Peel ridge gourds using a peeler, wash and chop into small pieces.
  • Chop onion, green chillies, coriander and set aside.
  • You will also need milk. I’m using low fat milk (1.5%)…feel free to use whole milk. This will decide the creamy texture and also the richness of the curry.

Let’s begin to cook the curry:

  • Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot enough, add mustard seeds, urad dal and chana dal. The mustard seeds pop up and the lentils turn light brown.
  • Now add chopped onions and green chillies. Sauté for a while till the onions become soft.
