Sorakaya Verusenaga Nuvvula Kura/Bottlegourd Curry with Peanuts & Sesame Seeds

Am a great fan of both bottlegourds and peanuts, obviously if i get a chance to cook with these ingredients how can i hesitate a second to cook with. My today's dish is a delicious Andhra style bottlegourd curry which i crossed here long back and i bookmarked it immediately.. A lipsmacking curry to relish hot with some rice and papads, we loved this super nutty curry very much. Though the main ingredient for making this recipe is bottlegourd, both peanuts and sesame seeds paste is a must to cook this curry which turns this dish more delicious with a fantastic aroma.
