Bottle Gourd Raita 2 (Yoghurt), Salt Free, Easy Method
Lauki ka Raita 2
Lauki raita was a popular dish in our house during my childhood. It has somehow lost its popularity these days. It contains no salt or spices. In our house, it was served as a 'prasad', a blessed food offering, after Hawan prayers on Dussehra, the festival to celebrate the victory of God Rama over the bad king Rawana of Lanka. We ate it with one of these Indian sweets;Boondi Laddoo or Coconut Burfi or Milk Barfi. Serves 4
