Lau Shukto - Squash in Mustard and Poppy Seed Sauce

Lau Shukto
Shukto is a very Bengali dish of vegetables that must include bitter melon as a component. However, some vegetables such as bottle gourd or lau (it's Bengali name) can be cooked on its own, in the same style, and are also called shukto. I have cheated by adding onions (not considered vegetarian) and tomatoes to this Lau Shukto. Our Ninja Chopper came in handy again to dice the vegetables really fine, so that they cook quicker. 

This can be served as a side dish with rice or chapatis.
