Bottle Gourd and Cottage Cheese Curry

clip_image002
Hi Folks. As you all know I have to travel, so had been busy clearing up the refrigerator. I was left with a small bottle gourd and cottage cheese which I partly utilised in my previous post of Ajwaini Paneer in Curds Gravy. So, just thought of mixing the two and making the curry. Initially I thought of not posting it, then on second thoughts I found it another interesting idea of introducing bottle gourd, which is a rich source of many vital nutrients. Not many people like this vegetable, so this version can be very interesting for them as the Paneer and gourd blend completely in each other and hides the gourd. 
I do not want to write much, lets quickly get to the recipe.
Ingredients
1 small bottle gourd peeled, washed and cubed
3 onions cubed
5-6 garlic pods
2 large tomatoes chopped roughly
1 tsp dry ginger powder
1 tsp red chili pwd
1/2 tsp turmeric pwd
2 tsp coriander pwd
1 tsp cumin pwd
1-2  tsp  kitchen king masala
a pinch of garam masala
salt to taste
Oil for cooking

Method
Grind coarsely onion, garlic and tomatoes together. Heat oil and add this paste and cook till the oil separates. Now add ginger, coriander, cumin powders. Also add the kitchen king masala. Add the gourd and cook  covered till almost done. Now add the paneer cubes and mix gently. Adjust the consistency by adding water, bring the curry to a boil. At the final stage put the garam masala, mix and serve with hot Paratha. I served it with Masala Kulcha.
