Dahi Turai Ki Sabzi or Ridge Gourd with curd subzi is a delightful side dish.  Turai or Ridge Gourd tastes bland but is high on the water and dietary fibres. It is easy to digest. Chef Kunal hides the bland taste of Turai by using various spices and makes a delicious and mildly spicy curd gravy.

Turai keeps the body hydrated, and its combination with dahi makes it highly nutritious.

This Dahi Turai Ki Sabzi served with Bajra roti is refreshing and pleasant.
