Majjiga Pulusu(Bottlegourd and tomato in Spiced Buttermilk)

Majjiga Pulusu or Buttermilk stew is a kind of stew where vegetables or greens are cooked in buttermilk,seasoned and then thickened a little bit.My favorite is always the one with greens.My mom makes this with buttermilk or even with fresh coconut milk.Given a chance,I would prefer the coconut milk one.For today,I am posting here a different version of this majjiga pulusu which my mother-in law and my sis-in law make usually.Today I used bottle gourd and tomato to make in my majjiga pulusu.This is one is equally tasty.So,here we go down the recipe.

1 tbsp grated coconut
1/4 tsp grated ginger
