ABOUT Turai (Ridge-gourd) Sabzi RECIPE

This vegetable is a Sindhi recipe with a little modification. This is a very light yet tasty dish enjoyed by all age groups. The vegetable is cooked with its own water content, no extra water is added during its cooking. This dish is packed with minerals. It is a recommended dish for ladies in their postnatal phase. The wee dollop of ghee added towards the end of the cooking process enhances its flavour.
