CB - nice taste but far foo spicy for me! I am not sure if I used an extra spicy type of chilli or if my recipe measurements were wrong. I wish the recipes mentioned "4 medium sized gourds" instead of "6 cups chopped gourd" it makes it so much easier

A variation to Bengali aloo poshto using turai...however i loved this variation as much as with potatoes. I made the subzi in mustard oil for that true Bengali touch.

Ridge gourd is not my favourite vegetable. But this subzi made me like the taste of ridge gourd. Not a very commmonly used vegetable. So one should try it on a day when they plan to make something different. Have with hot phulkas and you wont hate turai anymore.
