Sorakaya Chutney - Bottle gourd Chutney

Sorakaya Chutney
Bottle gourd is rich in iron, Vitamin C, zinc and Magnesium . It helps to reduce fatigue and used for treating indigestion and ulcer. This vegetable is rich in fibre and recommended for diabetic patients. Bottle gourd is known as 'Sorakaya' in telugu and 'Sorakkai' in tamil. Sorakaya pachadi alias Bottle gourd chutney can be served as a side dish to Idli and Dosa. It can also be served with Rice. I prefer to serve it with dosa. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing Sorakaya pachadi.
