Ingredients

  • 300 grams lauki (bottle gourd)

Warning

Bitter bottle gourd is poisonous. Always taste bottle gourd before you use it. If it's bitter, discard it.

Instructions

  1. Peel the lauki and then taste it to make sure it is not bitter. (Bitterness indicates that it is poisonous. If it's bitter, discard it and choose another lauki.)
  2. Chop the peeled lauki into small pieces. Chop the tomato into small pieces, as well.
  3. Add the chopped lauki and tomato to a blender and squeeze the lemon juice into it. Close the lid and blend until finely ground. If needed, add another small tomato to help in grinding but do not add water.
  4. Strain out the healthy and delicious juice. Serve immediately.
