Here is a delicious tangy and a mustardy flavoured parwal (pointed gourd) curry that is bursting with flavours. It is a simple dish without any tempering. Just mix everything and slow cook to perfection. I have added some chopped raw mangoes for the tanginess and also added kasundi (store bought mustard paste). But you can always use homemade mustard paste. Please check below a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it.
