  • Prepare the vegetables: Peel the lauki (bottle gourd) and dice it into small cubes. Finely chop the tomatoes and onion. Mince the garlic and grate the ginger.
  • Sauté aromatics: Heat the cooking oil in a large skillet or pan over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and let them splutter for a few seconds. Then add minced garlic, grated ginger, and slit green chili (if using). Sauté until fragrant.
  • Add onions: Add the finely chopped onions to the skillet. Sauté until they turn translucent.
  • Add tomatoes: Add the finely chopped tomatoes to the skillet. Cook until they soften and break down, forming a thick paste.
  • Add spices: Stir in turmeric powder, ground coriander, red chili powder, and salt to taste. Mix well to combine with the onion-tomato mixture.
  • Cook lauki: Add the diced lauki (bottle gourd) to the skillet. Stir well to coat them with the spice mixture. Cook for about 5-7 minutes until the lauki is partially cooked.
  • Simmer: Once the lauki is partially cooked, reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and let the curry simmer for another 10-15 minutes, or until the lauki is tender and cooked through.
  • Garnish and serve: Garnish the Lauki and Tomato Curry with fresh cilantro leaves before serving.
