– After 2 minutes, reduce the heat to low and cover the pan. Allow the ash gourd to cook slowly for about 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to develop.

– At this stage, add the gram flour (besan) and fresh coriander leaves (dhaniya patta) to the pan. Mix everything well, ensuring that the besan is evenly incorporated.

– Cook the mixture for another 2-3 minutes on low heat, allowing the besan to cook and blend with the other ingredients.
