Lauki sabji -Bottlegourd curry is my favourite meal.Unlike many people,I love bottle gourd or ghia.
Humble lauki is easy to cook.Great during pregnancy and helps you avoid constipation.It is one of the reasons I recovered well post pregnancy too.It has 96% water content and multiple health benefits.Some people will say arre bimaar hai kya jo lauki khaye?But believe me,it saves you from many diseases when you eat it at a regular basis.
- Easy to digest.Hence hightly recommended for those recovering from illness or injury.
- Great for diabetics and those who are controlling their weight
- Natural diuretic and good source of vitamins and Iron.
- Excellent way to control hypertension and UTI.
This is an easy curry so even toddlers can have it.You can cook with or without garlic and onions.
Add a potato if there are more people.
You donot need to add water to this veggie.It releases water as it cooks.
Tip: If you do not like it, Add some crushed peanuts to the curry.This enhances protein and adds texture to it.Some people may feel pulse drop in old age with this.In that case,avoid adding peanuts.You may add coconut for texture.
