    2. Mix cornflour and bread slices to the grated bottle gourd. add salt, chilli powder, coriander leaves and make a dough. split the dough into 6-8 balls and roll them firmly into dumplings
    3. Heat oil in a frying pan and deep fry the dumplings. Keep them aside.
    4. Chop and grind the onions, tomatoes,cashew, ginger and garlic into a paste. Heat onion in a frying pan and add cumin seeds and the bay leaf. Then add the ground paste to the oil and fry till the curry paste separates from the oil. Add chilli powder, coriander powder and salt and mix well.
    5. add cream to the fried curry paste and mix well. add water and bring it to a semi gravy consistency.
    6. add the fried dumplings to the gravy and serve with hot rotis, naan or fried rice.


    Cornflour and bread slices help to bind the dough well, so you may need to use an additional bread slice to get the right dough consistency.
