Bottle Gourd Raita 1 (Yoghurt), Salt Free, Traditional Method
Lauki Raita 1
This method is only for people who make their own yoghurt. Lauki raita was a popular dish during my childhood, but has somehow lost its popularity, perhaps because it normally requires making your own yoghurt! This is a simplified version and it contains no salt or spices. In our house, it is always made on Dussehra, the festival to celebrate the victory of God Rama on the bad king Rawana of Lanka. It is served as a 'prasad', a blessed food offering, after ‘hawan’, a prayer meeting. It is usually served with one of these Indian sweet;Boondi Laddoo or Coconut Burfi or Milk Barfi. Serves 4
