Bottle Gourd - C\also called Louki/Ghia/Dudhi in urdu/hindi. This is a vegetable with excellent health benefits. Even it was our Prophets favorite vegetable!! Today I am introducing u a yogurt based dish - made of this spiced veggie. It tastes delicious! It is also best for ppl on diet, as very less oil used :) The veggie is shown in the pic below:

Now, take a saucepan, heat it, add the grated bottle gourd (Lauki) in it. Add few tsp of water. Add salt & black pepper. Cover the pan, and keep on very low flame for 10-15 minutes. Keep stirring in between. The veggie itself will release enough. Once tender, raise the flame & cook until all water gets evaporated. Cool it down.

Next take a bowl, whisk yogurt, add cumin seeds, sugar, coriander, green chili paste, add the veggie & mix. Adjust salt & the yummacious raita is readyyy to serve. Serve it with rice or Flat bread (Chapati) with butter on it.. yumm!! Those on diet can add chopped onions & tomatoes in it and have with spoon hehe :P Plz :)

Enjoy!
