Tender ridge gourd and fresh, fragrant dill leaves pair excellently in this soup. Milk and fresh cream blended in with cooked ridge gourd and dill results in a creamy texture that is hard to beat in terms of taste. Mildly seasoned with salt and pepper, this soup has excellent medicinal properties as well. The soup tastes best when served with a dollop of fresh cream, and crunchy toast.

First i thought how will a rich gourd soup taste.. But when i made it, it was just un believable. The dill leaves have a prominent taste whereas yount wont come to know that there is any turai in the soup.. It is so simple, tasty and creamy as well.
