"Hulitovve" is a dish which is similar to Sambar with variations in the ingredients and taste.This can be prepared with vegetables like Snakegourd, Ridge gourd, Sweet pumpkin.Hulitovve is usually made during festivals and most of the time in Raghavendra Swamy Mutts in Bangalore.

I have used Ridge gourd in Hulitovve. I usually  make chutney  from  the ridge gourd's skin  and use the inside part for Hulitovve.The one ingredient which gives taste to this is Cinnamon powder/Dalchini powder.

Green gram dal/Hesarubele - 1/2 cup
Toor Dal -1/2 cup
Sambar powder- 2 tsp
Ridge gourd cut- 1 cup
Coconut grated- 2-3 tbsp
Coriander leaves-1 tsp
Jaggery- 1/2 inch  piece
Tamarind juice- 3tbsp
Salt to taste

Peanut oil- 1tsp
Mustard seeds-1 tsp
Cinnamon  powder- 1/2 tsp
Dry red Chillies- 1-2
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Hing -  a pinch

Dry roast the green gram dal for 2 mins (until it becomes hot).Pressure cook Toor dal and Green gram dal.
Cook the ridge gourd soft. Grind coconut and sambar powder with water in a mixer.Add Tamarind juice,coconut and sambar powder ground, cooked dals to the ridge gourd.Add salt and jaggery.Boil the contents and finally add seasoning.( cinnamon powder has to be added to seasoning).Mix well and garnish with coriander leaves.
