During summers, the choice of vegetables shrinks, especially as compared to the green winters. Lauki, fine lauki is available in abundance. I know that’s not very good news, as not many are fond of lauki. But you don’t need to make a boring lauki ki sabzi every time. There are many more palatable ways to include lauki in the diet. But why do we need to do that?
This veggie is rich in vitamins and mineral and dietary fibre and low in saturated fats is great for
1. People who watch their weight: Anything that is high in dietary fibre assists in weight loss.
2. The next advantage of being high in dietary fibre is that lauki helps to cure constipation.
3. It is easy to digest and therefore can be consumed by anyone with the poor digestive system or even kids or anyone recovering from illness. I still remember after an upset stomach my Mom used to make lauki ki sabzi with phulkas and believe me that too was heavenly.
4. It helps to keep the heart and liver healthy.
5. Lauki controls blood pressure and diabetes.
6. Bottle gourd keeps you away from depression etc and also regulates sleep.
