Such a fabulous way to use the bottle gourd. The dish works very well stewed with pan seared chicken; a very comforting dish for the fall. If you, like me, are not familiar with the bottle gourd as an ingredient, then this is the perfect way to get acquainted. I will be seeking out a good market to find bottle gourd now in the NYC area!

i dont like bottle gourd much but this recipe is like wow. I loved it. It is lemony in taste. And doodhi does not actually taste like doodhi. It tastes really really nice. Also the cumin seeds have a very strong and delicious flavour.
