Ridge Gourd with Groundnuts / Dodkyachi Bhaji

Time 30 min
Ridge gourd 2 medium size (remove outer edges and cut into 2 inch pieces)
Finely chopped onion 2 medium size
Red chili powder 1.5 tsp & ginger garlic paste 1/4 tsp / Kolhapuri masala 2 tsp
Roasted groundnut powder 1 tbsp
Water 2 tbsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Salt to taste

Heat oil in pan, add onion, saute till onion turns golden brown. Then add ridge gourd. Fry and stir well for about 3-4 min. Then add red chili powder & ginger garlic paste / Kolhapuri masala, mix well and fry for 3-4 min. Then add ridge gourd and mix well for 2-3 min. Then add 2 tbsp water cover with lid and cook for about 7-8 min till ridge gourd is cooked 80 %.
Then add groundnut powder and salt. Stir well. Then let it cook for about 5-6 min till its done. Keep checking the water level to avoid burning. Switch off the flame, and serve hot with chapati.

It is dry bhaji / sabji so keep in mind water requirement to avoid overcooking. U need to taste whether it has been cooked or not.

If u add more groundnut powder and water it will become gravy bhaji.
