Beerakaya tomato Kura/Ridgegourd Tomato Curry

Beerakaya is the famous Ridge gourd in Telugu, usually i cook this beautiful vegetable often as dal,kootu,as chutney, or simply as a stir fry. While googling, i got hooked to this dal less tomato curry from Sailu's Beerkaya tomato kura. This Andhra style ridge gourd curry tastes extremely delicious, very simple to make.  Jaggery and fennel seeds used in this curry makes this curry more flavourful with mild sweetness. When served along with rice and papads, am sure everyone will have a satisfying meal, we loved this beautiful Andhra beerakaya tomato kura for our lunch and for dinner with rotis. This curry tastes even more delicious with simple chappathis.
