Lauki Chana Dal is a nutritious recipe that combined the Bottle Gourd and lentils making it a perfect dish for a wholesome lunch or dinner. Lauki is also known as Doodhi or Giya and one of my favorite dishes while growing up.
In the South, we make Kootu with the Lauki that was cooked along with lentils and coconut. When I got married I noticed many similarities with this dish and Kootu. Both used bengal gram and bottle gourd; only that the flavors and textures were different and in no time Dudhi Chana Dal became my favorite as well.
Serve Lauki Chana Dal along with Aloo Simla Mirch Ki Sabzi, Bhakri and Palak Raita for a weekday lunch or dinner.
