Lauki Soup/ Bottle Gourd Soup – A Weight Loss Recipe

5 from 1 vote

Lauki Soup is a light soup which helps to reduce weight. This is a perfect weight loss recipe. Bottle gourd soup is low in calories and fats but keep ones full for longer time, thus extra munching in between meals are avoided.
This is not a creamy soup which adds to calories, thus cream, butter or potato are not added in the soup.
