Revel in the cooling effect and goodness of doodhi and protein-rich curds, in one single dish! While you might worry that using doodhi alone might result in a mushy raita, some smart moves make this version a lot more exciting.

Onions, green chillies and ginger are cooked along with the doodhi to give the raita a rich texture and aroma, while crushed peanuts further add to the flavour and mouth-feel. A traditional tempering is the final stroke, which makes the Lauki ka Raita absolutely aromatic and appealing to the palate.

Serve with Lazeez Parathas and Bajra, Whole Moong and Green Pea Khichdi .

Simple but tastes great. It''s a raita so should be enjoyed as a part of a meal, but I often have it as a healthy snack as well.
