This is one of the healthy sabzi recipe that can be prepared on day to day basis. We prefer this with phulka roti or masala paratha.

Here I have made little gravy. This gravy is slightly thinner compared to other gravy recipes. If you prefer the dry version of sabzi then you can skip the addition of water in the recipe.

For the variation, you can add cubed potatoes. This makes the gravy slightly thicker. Or you can add green peas too.

This lauki tamatar sabzi recipe is no onion no garlic recipe. So this makes the complete satvik sabzi.

For making this lauki tamatar ki sabzi, make sure that your lauki has no many seeds. If the seeds are mature and tough then please remove those. If there are few seeds and they are soft and tender then you can keep.
