ABOUT Turai Ki Sabzi | Ridge Gourd Sabzi RECIPE

This is my Mom's recipe and is 35 years old! Turai/ Ridge Gourd ki Sabzi recipe is made during summer month and is loved by some and hated by many. Turai is a healthy green vegetable that is light on stomach and is prepared using minimum spices and preparations. This watery vegetable absorbs flavours easily and turns out to be very delicious. The spongy flesh inside the bright green outer cover gives a good body to the dish. Enjoy this turai recipe with fresh rotis or phulkas.
