In our early married life, hubby does not prefer bottle gourd in any form at all. But in my childhood I have eaten it very regularly and so I craved for it. So I used make the dishes for myself only. But after trying lauki chana dal for first time, he enjoyed that much that he got comfortable eating this vegetable.

Since then I have been making many lauki recipes e.g. lauki theplalauki soup, lauki kofta curry.

Along with all these recipes, lauki sabzi is also regular at my home. Lauki or dudhi has many health benefits and you should include that in your diet.

Addition of curry leaves gives the BEST TASTE in this sabzi, so do not skip it.

For the spicy flavor only green chilies are used. No other spice powder are added.
