Bottle Gourd (Dudhi) Soup

Rains have officially started and there's nothing more ideal than to settle in with a hot bowl of soup. While many of you may agree to this idea, a lot of you may not agree that dudhi soup can be tasty or appealing. But like I always say, wait till you give it a try. It will be worth it, promise.


  • One medium sized lauki or bottle gourd cut into peices.
  • One tomato
  • One onion roughly cut into pieces
  • 4-5 cloves of garlic crushed.
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • In a big vessel, add water so that it just covers the dudhi.
  • Cook for 15-20 minutes till it is done.
  • In the mean while, saute onion and garlic for five minutes on a low flame. Add tomatoes to it and let it cook for two more minutes.
  • Stir in salt and pepper. Take it off the flame and let it cool.
  • Once the bottle gourd is cooked, let it cool too.
  • Grind everything together so that it is a fine paste. Add 2-3 cups of water and let it simmer for two minutes.
  • Serve hot.
