Are you one of those who makes a face when there is bottle gourd (lauki/doodhi) for dinner? If so you are missing out on some of it healthy benefits. Doodhi is excellent for weight loss as a 100g of raw doodhi has as low as 14 calories. It is also recommended for people who suffer from high BP or other heart ailments as it is high on fibre. This keeps cholesterol levels low. To add taste to this so-called boring vegetable try making it in an innovative yet healthy manner. This recipe is suggested by Ayurvedic cookbook author Gita Ramesh.
