Bottle Gourd & Mint Raita

This tangy raita preparation makes for a wonderful summertime treat. The bottle gourd blends perfectly with the minty flavor of the raita. The raita gives you minimum calories and makes for a perfect meal time feast for people trying to lose weight.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 5 minutes

Makes: 4 servings


Grated Bottle Gourd (Dudhi/Lauki)- 1 cup

Low Fat curd (Dahi)- 1 cup

Finely-Chopped Mint Leaves (Pudhina)- 4 tbsp

Roasted Cumin Seeds (Jeera)- ¼ tsp

Sugar- ½ tsp



  • Take the curd in a bowl and beat it with a whisker until it turns smooth. Set aside.
  • Steam the shredded bottle gourd for 4 to 5 minutes, and allow it to cool completely.
  • Put all the ingredients together in a serving bowl and whisk it all together.
  • Refrigerate it for 2 to 3 hours.
  • Serve chilled.

Note: Do not boil the bottle gourd as that will make it very mushy and will take the crunch out of the salad.
