About this recipe

This is the traditional recipe and served very next to Payasam (Kheer) in all important feasts of Tamilnadu. This healthy, fiber rich and easy to make raitha tastes exotic with any type of meals. The creamy and white raitha looks great when served on the green banana leaves...

How to cook Ash Gourd Raitha

  1. Select matured and stubborn Ash gourd. The spongy one does not suit to make raithas. Peel the skin and cut them into small rectangle pieces.
  2. Without adding water semi boil them in a steamer or in idli plates. See to it that the pieces are firm and do not become very soft. Keep them aside to cool down.
