  1. Recipe Instructions Squeeze out the excess water from grated gourd. In a large plate, sieve the flour with the soda. Add semolina, make a well in the centre. Add all other ingredients in the well. Knead into a soft dough. Use greased palms and shape into 6" long, 1" wide rolls. Arrange in a colander to boil over steam. Or use a double walled steamer. Cover lid tightly and steam for 1/2 hour. Cut into 1" pieces. Serve piping hot with kadhi or fresh curds. Note: You may substitute coriander with methi leaves or spinach. You may substitute bottlegourd with pumpkin or cucumber. Variation: If you want to convert it to a dry snack, cool the pieces. Heat some oil in a kadai, add pieces.
