When you buy the parval, make sure that you select the young one. young pointed gourd’s skin should be bright green in color and inside is whitish in color. And the seeds are very small and so tender. these tender seeds makes  the sabzi more flavorful and delicious.

The mature and ripe ones have hard seeds in it, if you got any by chance. You must remove and discard those seeds, Those seeds are so hard and inedible. The ripe ones are yellowish in color from inside.

Any kind of sookhi sabzi is always welcomed in my home. I make different varieties of sabzi almost every single day for our lunch or dinner. This kind of vegetables goes well with roti or phulka. And these combination is very healthy and nutritious.

This parval ki sabzi is very regular at my mom’s place. And I am following her footsteps, I do make this very often. The good thing is that picky eater hubby also likes it.

Sometimes I add a small potato to this. As potato is very versatile vegetable, that can be paired with any other vegetable. But most of the time I make without potatoes.
