ASH GOURD / KUVAALE SASAM

Another GSB recipe of Ash gourd. Mainly Kuvaale sasam is prepared at the time of temple festivals or wedding. Also this special dish is prepared in most of the GSB homes on Subramanya Shristi Day. It is not spicy and loved by children. Recently we had religious function at home and this particular dish was one of the items in our menu. Here is the recipe, a very simple, yet tasty and I loved juicy kuvaale pieces (phodos) in it.
