How to Make

  • Remove the stems from marrows, wash, peel and cut the ends.
  • Core the length of each marrow, leaving half-inch walls to form tubes.
  • Mix the marinade ingredients and rub the marrow inside-out with this mixture.
  • Keep aside for 15 mins.
  • Heat ghee in a wok and deep-fry the marinated marrow over medium heat until cooked (approx. 5-7 mins).
  • The marrow will become limp but that is no cause for worry. Remove and cool.
  • For the filling:
  • Boil, cool, peel and mash potatoes. Fry khoya in a wok over medium heat until light brown.
  • Peel, wash and finely chop onions. Scrape, wash and finely chop ginger.
  • Clean, wash and chop coriander leaves.
  • Remove stems, wash, slit, deseed and finely chop green chillies.
  • Blanch almonds, cool, remove skin and split.
  • Heat ghee in a wok, add onions and saute over medium heat until light brown.
  • Add potatoes, fry for 5 mins. Add the remaining filling ingredients, except lemon juice, stir and fry for 3 mins. Remove, cool, add lemon juice and mix well. Adjust the seasoning.
  • Heat butter in a wok, add yogurt and bring to a boil thrice.
  • Add roasted cashewnut paste and fried onion paste, stir.
  • Then add water (approx 2 tbsps) and the remaining coating ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce to medium heat and fry for 2 mins.
  • Chop the roasted cashewnuts, for garnishing.
  • Grease a roasting pan with ghee, arrange the stuffed marrows in it and roast in the pre-heated oven for 4-5 mins.
  • Remove, coat with the yoghurt-cashewnut mixture and roast for 4-5 mins.
  • Remove to a plate, cut into 1-inch thick slices.
  • Pour the drippings on top, garnish with roasted cashewnuts and serve with roti/bread.
