Kuvale salli upkari (Ash Gourd peel stir fry)

This stir fry is generally prepared in temples in my native during “annadana”.   Most of the temples in my native give daily lunch to school kids and devotees.    They serve rice, ash gourd/pumpkin sambar (sweetened with small piece of jaggery), rasam and ash gourd/pumpkin peel stir fry.   Some temples serve payasam also.

I used to go temple with my grand mother in my childhood just for this stir fry.  Missing those days!!!!!!
