About Tadki Bhadki Torai - Ridged Gourd

Vegetables from the gourd family are extremely healthy. Its great for your stomach, skin, weight loss & Torai (Ridged gourd) is my personal favorite when it comes to Indian cooking. The spices in Indian cooking with these tender gourds are a great combination & taste extremely delicious. If you have a spicy Indian tooth...You just cant relish them enough!
