Ivy Gourd Bharta


Hello and welcome to my cooking corner again. Today I’m going to make a chutney of ivy gourd with garlic. It is great to have with dosais, appam, idli,poha, dhoklas etc. It tastes good and is a very healthier version of chutneys. You can try making it and I am sure you all will like it too. So let’s start making it—


  1. Ivy Gourd-250 gms
  2. Onion-1(big)
  3. Dry RedChillies-2
  4. Garlic-A few
  5. Roasted Chana Dal or Roasted Peanuts-3 tbsp
  6. Lemon Juice-1 tsp

For the tempering:-

  1. Black Mustard-1/2 tsp
  2. Vegetable Oil-1 tbsp
  3. Curry Leaves-A few


Step 1

Wash and cut the ivy gourds. Chop the onion. Roast the chana dal and soak it for two hours and grind it together with the other ingredients. If you want to use peanuts then do the same as above.

Step 2

Take a pan and add oil. Now add onion, garlic, dry red chilies, chopped ivy gourds, chana dal or peanuts and fry for a minute. Grind everything to get a thick paste.

Step 3


Now mix in some mustard oil and lemon juice to the chutney. Or alternately you can temper it with the tempering given above and add some tamarind paste to it.

Our Ivy Gourd Bhartaย is done. Garnish with green coriander leaves. Serve it with bread,dosai,poha, dhoklas etc.

Friends do try the recipe at home. Share your comments and feedback. Have a great week ahead. Take care. Till then healthy cooking, happy living!!!
