Sorakaya Garelu - Bottle gourd cutlets

I learnt this recipe from my dear friend Swathi...This's so easy to make and tastes so good...I made it for breakfast took only 30min to prepare this from scratch..Here goes the recipe...


Sorakaya/Lauki/Bottle gourd - 1 cup (grated)
Rice flour - 1 cup
Onion - 1 small (finely chopped)
Green chillies - 3 (finely chopped)
Grated ginger - 1 tsp
Chana dal - 1 tbsp (soak in hot boiling water for 5min)
Salt - to taste
Oil - 2 cups (to deep fry)


1. Heat the oil in a deep bottomed frying pan.
2. While the oil gets heated up, prepare the mix.
3. Take a mixing bowl, add rice flour, grated lauki, onion,green chillies, ginger, chana dal and salt.
4. Mix well to make a thick dough. DO NOT add water. Lauki itself has lots of water in it.
5. Make 10 lemon sized balls with the dough.
6. Reduce the flame to medium, wet your palms with oil and press the dough to the shape of a small pattie.
7. Carefully slide the patties into the pan.
8. Fry all the patties in batches on medium until the color turns golden brown.
9. Drain the excess oil with a tissue paper.
10. Serve hot with any chutney, they taste good on their own too.

I guess we can add grated carrot too for extra nutrition.
