Lauki (Bottle Gourd) Bites


Bottle Gourd (Lauki) is very good for your stomach because it’s a cold vegetable and it helps with acidity.

This is very easy recipe and a perfect party snack or a side dish.

Ingredients:-


  • 3 cups Lauki, grated
  • 4 tbsp Gram Flour
  • 3 tbsp Rice Flour
  • 2 tbsp Juwar Flour (Jowar Flour)
  • 5 Garlic Cloves, chopped
  • 1-1/2 tsp Ginger, grated
  • 1/4 tsp Asafetida
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tbsp Dhania-Jeera Powder
  • 1 tsp Red Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • 2 tsp Chat Masala
  • 3 tbsp Cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Oil, plus extra for shallow fry
  • Salt to taste

Method:-

1. Mix all ingredients into the bowl and mix well.

2. Heat oil in the pan. Shape the mixture in quarter-size circles about half-inch thick.

3. Cook both sides on low heat until its cooked and golden brown.

4. Serve hot with cool raita or ranch.

This is my entry to Pooja’s VoTW - Bottle Gourd Event.
