Lauki Roll / Bottle Gourd Roll

There are so many dishes that can be cooked with Bottle Gourd. It’s such a universal vegetable. Popular in the Indian subcontinent and one of my favourite too. I cook mostly as a vegetable with different garnishes like grated coconut or fried lentil dumplings coarsely crushed or chopped coriander leaves. All varieties taste heavenly. I saw lot of recipes on desserts from Lauki and chose to make one. The Roll was so good to taste. Let’s dig in #MadhubishsKitchen #LaukiRoll #BottleGourdRoll
