Top 10 Lauki, Doodhi Recipes

It’s easy to come across Lauki in India. Lauki is also known as Bottle Gourd or Doodhi in India. Just walk through the market and spot one veggie that every other vendor has (except onion, tomato and potato, of course), and it must be bottle gourd.

As kids most of us grew up on doodhi soup, but the wonder is that all of us continue to like this veggie even after we grow up – either because we cannot escape such as ubiquitous veggie or because it is so versatile and can be consumed in ever-so-many ways! Yes, bottle gourd is that seemingly simple but awesome veggie that you buy every other week.

If you bought more bottle gourd than you need, store it in the vegetable section of your fridge. If you ended up chopping more than you need, place the chopped bottle gourd in a dry and airtight container and refrigerate. You can even place the chopped bottle gourd in a glass container, cover with cling film and refrigerate. You can always use it up the next day because there are so many exciting ways to do so. For the spice lover or the sweet tooth, there is no dearth of recipes with bottle gourd.

Apart from these, you will find many more wonderful ones on our website, so you don’t have to think before buying doodhi, ever!

Pachadis are the south Indian equivalent of raita, and commonly there are two types of this accompaniment. The ones made with colocassia as the base are usually spicy, while the ones made with curds as the base are are normally bland. However, here is a unique Doodhi Pachadi, made with cooling bottle gourd and curds, perked up with myriad chat-pata ingredients like ginger, green chillies and onions too. A traditional, aromatic tempering offers the perfect finishing touch to this creative pachadi, making it a true tongue-tickler. Serve it fresh, before it becomes watery, with a full-fledged South Indian meal, or as a simple Accompaniments to Parathas or mixed rice dishes like Coconut Rice or Tomato Rice( South Indian Recipes )

Muthia is a fist-shaped steamed snack that's much-loved by the Gujaratis. Doodhi and onions when combined with an apt combination of semolina and flours like whole wheat flour and besan yield delicious Doodhi Muthias. Ingredients like ginger, green chillies and coriander give the muthias a zesty flavour while a traditional tempering of mustard and sesame seeds gives it an appetizing aroma and awesome crunch. Enjoy the Doodhi Muthias right off the steamer.

A traditional mithai that everybody has a reason to like—some for the taste, some for the goodness of doodhi and milk, and some for the warm feeling it instils on a rainy day! I know some busy-bees who would stop over at a sweetmeat stall, have a cup of halwa and a samosa in lieu of a meal, and continue their work with full energy! Besides sweet you can consume doodhi in a variety of other dishes like Doodhiya Kheech , Doodhi Theplas , Doodhi Muthia , Doodhi and Chana Dal Subzi , Budijaw and Doodhi Kheer .

Everyday fare, the Doodhi and Chana Dal Subzi is a wealth of good health. Rich in protein and folic acid, thanks to chana dal and doodhi, this subzi can be prepared easily and quickly provided you have soaked the dal earlier. The best part is that this no-fuss, no-sweat recipe is made with ingredients that you are sure to have at home!

An off-beat finger-food from Burmese cuisine, the Budijaw is made by deep-frying bottle gourd fingers coated in a spicy batter. The batter gets its lip-smacking flavour from a pungent onion paste and a couple of spice powders too. This crispy snack is complemented well by a tangy and spicy garlic chutney. Serve this Burmese Doodhi Snack immediately on preparation, to enjoy its special texture that is crisp outside and succulent inside.

This is the real thing - a healthy snack that is full of protein, calcium and fibre. You'll be amazed at how easily this traditional Gujarati dish can be made 'healthy' by skipping the oil that is considered so essential to cook them. They also make a great travelling snack, as they stay well for a couple of days without refrigeration and also beautifully complement a hot cup of masala tea.

Make a note of the tomato gravy used in this recipe, as it is a versatile base that combines well with a wide range of veggies and koftas. However, serving the gravy with these special doodhi koftas gives it a healthy twist because they are steamed and not deep-fried. The Baked Doodhi Kofta Curry is loaded with iron and folic acid, and is a wonderful food for mothers-to-be and young kids too.

When sautéed in ghee, bottle gourd sheds its raw smell and takes on a rather rich aroma, which fits perfectly into a milky kheer. The addition of milk powder helps to bring about a luxuriant feel to the milk without requiring to boil it for a long time, while cardamom powder and almond garnish add to the opulence. This Doodhi Kheer is indeed a delight to the palate! Nevertheless, it is also a pleasure to prepare as it is conveniently ready in less than 10 minutes! Relish this kheer as a dessert or with Rotis / Puris / Parathas .
This is the South Indian counterpart of kadi. It can be prepared with various vegetables like ladies finger, white pumpkin, capsicum, colocasia etc. Try other curries such as Mixed Vegetable Kuzhambu , Pumpkin Kootu , Kadala Curry and serve with plain rice .
