aakakarakaya fry or boda kakarakaya kura - aa kakarakaya curry andhra style


Aakakarakaya fry or boda kakarakaya kura andhra style is one of my favourite curry. Aa kakarakaya koora is called as Teasel gourd or Hedgehog or spiny gourd in english, kantola in hindi, kakrol in bengali, kankoda in gujrati and boda kakarakaya in telugu. These are nothing but the miniatures of kakarakaya i.e. bitter gourd, but are not bitter in taste.

In my childhood I would run away on seeing this curry. My mother used to push this curry into my mouth and I used to cry. But after growing up I started liking it slowly and now I wait for winter season to relish this recipe. As teasel gourd is a seasonal vegetable and is widely available only during winters. For vegetarians this Akakarakaya vegetable is like non veg ☺whenever guests pop up they prepare this curry as a honour. 

Coming to the health benefits of teasel gourd, it is rich in anti oxidants which play a pivotal role in reducing the risk of cancer,

Chopping ivy gourds is sure a time taking process but the end product will be super scrumptious. Dondakaya is a watery vegetable and hence it is good to eat in summers. I prepare this recipe at least twice a month.
