Lauki also known as bottle gourd, sorakkai used to be one of my favorite in childhood days. Only I like the sorakkai kootu my mom makes. Otherwise I have no idea what one would do with it. But after marriage I have never made it as Vj is not a big fan of it. The sorakkai kootu recipe in my blog has been clicked when we made it during my Chennai visit. But I always wanted to cook lauki. But I am too lazy to cook that especially for me. But these days I am dont bother to cook, I try to include more vegetables in my diet, so I when a reader friend Chithra Balasubramaniam sent me this recipe, it sounded too good and I thought I should try it very soon. So this week when I saw this in Fairprice, I thought I should try this sure and make a post too. Today I made this for my lunch and I loved it so much. I love parathas so much for lunch or dinner than the regular rice menu I make. But mostly lack of time and laziness wins. But today, I made this just for me and this will be my dinner too. I will happily eat for both lunch and dinner. Its healthy and tasty too. Thank you for this wonderful recipe Chithra 😊.
Serve simply with curd and pickle. I had with my mango thokku
