How to cook?
  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.
  3. Ash Gourd Raitha
  4. Grind coconut and chillies with required salt for the raitha to paste adding minimum water. Now add chopped coriander leaves, ground paste and curd to the veg pieces and stir well.
  5. Do the seasoning with mustard seeds and curry leaves. If you are planning to have lunch later refrigerate it and use before serving.

Note: A very ideal recipe for those who are under the weight reducing process if you use the curd made from skimmed milk with low fat...
