Hi Trupti:) Bottle gourd raita looks healthy and simple, I love such variations to raitas:) Its a really innovative idea to use it in Raita, when you cook it after grating. I am sure it must have tasted yum. And Congrats on the Yum-Yum blog award and the Friendship awards Thank you so much for considering me for the award:) It means a lot to me:)
