A delicious vegetable curry made with bottle gourd pieces slathered in a delicious yet spice masala. Vegetarian, gluten-free and healthy, this is the type of curry that you will want to eat every night.

Lauki ki sabzi is a popular vegetarian curry made with bottle gourd. Bottle gourd is a popular vegetable that flourishes in the summer. My healthy recipe will show you how to transform this vegetable into a delicious curry featuring a delicious onion and tomato masala with a gentle hint of spices.

This bottle gourd curry will be a hit with everyone as it’s vegetarian, gluten-free, and healthy. This is the type of curry that you will want to eat every day. Nothing says home quite like a warming bowl of lauki ki sabzi with homemade chapatti.

This vegetable curry recipe uses bottle gourd as the main ingredient in this recipe. There are many different names for this vegetable, such as calabash, lauki, long melon, dudhi, and opo squash.

One of the best things about this recipe is that it is extremely low in calories due to its very high-water content and has very little fat. Bottle gourd is one of those ingredients that has an array of benefits perfect for weight loss and just general good health.

It’s very simple but does not compromise on flavour at all. As with a lot of my curries, it has a spicy onion and tomato base that perfectly complements the lauki. Bottle gourd is popular during the summer months. Although that’s not to say it is not eaten in the winter.
