Bottle Gourd or Dudhi Bhopla , is very common vegetable in kitchen.Though many people don't prefer it, we still have in kitchen for so many recipes like kofta, Thalipeeth, Mix vegetable, Parathe and many more.
I make Dudhi Bhopla Bhaji many times and use in Jowar Dhapate as well. Dudhi Bhopla vegetable can be made in gravy in Maharashtrian style with roasted peanuts.
Surprisingly, it not limited to vegetables only, we can make one sweet dish Dudhi Halwa or Lauki Halwa from it.I made it many times and it taste very delicious.Those who don't like Dudhi Bhopla, give them this Dudhi Halwa and surprise them with the taste.
It has many medicinal good properties, many diabetes people use juice of Bottle gourd or mix with Karela Juice.
