Lauki Raita

Frankly speaking I am not a Lauki lover neither knew the taste of lauki before last year. It was just when I started eating Lauki Kofta I taught of trying it in 
various dishes... & Lauki Raita is a best complement with roti's & parant's...

Ingredients:

Lauki (Bottle Gourd) - 3/4 Cup (Gratted)
Curd - 1 cup
Onion - 1 Medium (finely chopped)
Garlic - 5 pods
Curry Leaves - 10-12
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Cumin Seeds - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp ( or less)
Salt - to taste
Cumin Powder - to garnish
Water - 1/2 cup

Procedure:

  1. Boil the grated lauki with water for 3-5 minutes.
  2. Remove the excess water and let it cool.
  3. Crush the garlic in a pestle and keep aside.
  4. In a bowl take curd, add the cooked lauki and salt to it. Mix it and keep aside.
  5. In a pan heat oil. Add the mustard seeds and cumin, once they splutter add the curry leaves and crushed garlic.
  6. Mix it and add the finely chopped onion.
  7. Cook till the onion becomes translucent.
  8. Add the cooked onion to the curd and mix it properly.
  9. Serve sprinkling cumin powder on it.
