Lauki Methi Sprouts Stir Fry

lauki methi sprouts
After my alloo methi sprouthi sprouts stir fry was a hit, I followed a friend Balvinder Kaur's idea of using fenugreek sprouts with pumpkin to make kaddu methi sprouts stir fry. I loved the recipe, which was liked by hubby as well.

So I tried to replace pumpkin with lauki, ghiya, or bottle gourd, which is hated by most young members in Indian households. I must say this is one of the yummiest lauki recipes ever.

Undoubtedly, this is the best way to serve lauki to your family. The humble bottle gourd is rich in nutrients, vitamins, minerals and full of easily digestible fiber. It is useful in weight loss, lowering your blood pressure levels, and keeping heart healthy.

Bottle gourd has a cooling effect on the body. Since it is available in plenty in summers, so why not increase your intake of lauki in the hot season and enjoy its benefits. It replenishes water loss from your body.

Let's get back to the lauki methi sprouts recipe:
Ingredients

1 lauki
1/2 cup- methi sprouts
1 tomato
1 boiled potato (optional)
salt, red chilly powder, sambar powder (optional - here is the home made sambar masala recipe)
turmeric, cumin seeds
1 tsp-mustard oil

How to make bottle gourd stir fry: Procedure
