Lauki / Doodhi Ki Sabzi

June 11, 2010

Lauki also know as bottle gourd is a vegetable with a load full of health benefits. It’s juice is known to lower cholesterol and Madhura swears by it. It is rich in iron, protein and fiber. Unfortunately, there aren’t many interesting recipes to enjoy this great vegetable. I tried this recipe I remember from childhood my mom used to prepare, of course no one can beat mom’s cooking. But here it is. Hopefully you guys will enjoy just like my husband and I did.
