Bottle gourd, opo squash or long melon is a vine grown for its fruit, which can either
be harvested young and used as a vegetable,
or harvested mature, dried, and used as a bottle, utensil, or pipe. For this
reason, the calabash is widely known as the bottle gourd. It has a light green
smooth skin and a white flesh. Rounder varieties are called calabash gourds.
They come in a variety of shapes, they can be huge and rounded, or small and
bottle shaped, or slim and more than a meter long.
In India, it is
known as lauki, dudhi, or ghiya. In North India region, there are
so many savory dishes which prepare by bottle gourd or lauki. In Maharashtra,
the skin of the gourd is used in making a Chutney preparation. It’s very healthy in case
of heart disease and high blood pressure. It’s consumed in majority of the Indian
families because of availability in reasonable market price. Ayurveda also recommends the juice of
this gourd in the treatment of acidity,
indigestion and ulcers as it serves as
an alkaline mixture.

  1. This looks delicious and is a healthy sweet.
    My suggestion is to not to add the green colour always. Colour is not good for health.
    Add it only when made for special occasions.
