Sore Kaayi Sippe ( Bottle Gourd Peel) Chutney

Here is a typical Havyaka style Sorekaayi chutney recipe. I learnt this recipe from my mom. It doesnt take much time to prepare. Give it a try. Enjoy.

  • 1 cup Sorekaayi sippe 
  • 2-3 red Chilies ( to taste)
  • 1 tsp Coriander seed
  • Pinch of hing / Asafoetida
  • 1 cup grated Coconut ( fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 tsp Oil
  • 2 tsp Tamarind extract
  • Salt to taste
For Tempering
  • 1 tsp Oil ( I prefer Coconut oil)
  • 1 broken red Chilli
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds

  • Cook the Sorekaayi sippe in water for 10-12 min ( until it becomes soft).
  • Roast the red Chilies, Coriander seeds and Hing in 1/2 tsp Oil.
  • Grind the roasted spices , Tamarind and salt with coconut for about 2 min, then add the cooked Bottle gourd peel  and very little water. Again grind for a min.
  • Finally temper with Mustard seeds and broken red chili.
  • Serve with hot plain rice and a piece of Onion.
