Toor Dal Lauki Recipe
Lauki Dal or Dudhi dal is one of those recipes which I prepare when I’m in hurry to finish cooking or don’t want to cook anything or simply cause there is lauki at home. The recipe is simple and easy resulting in delicious dal and the big advantage is you really don’t have to cook any vegetable, without any side dish or sabji also our loyal lauki/dudhi dal will taste just yummy. There are few version of making lauki dal in my home we prepare lauki with various dal and in different ways.


I maximum do toor dal lauki in below mention method with slight variations some times, you have to choose tender bottle gourd to make dal lauki or the dal will not taste nice and also the fresh ones.  I personally like to chop bottle gourd in small pieces as I don't like to bite on big pieces but if you wish you can cut them in to chunks too.

You can do follow the same method and use chana or yellow moong dal to make dal lauki too but for chana dal lauki I have a different method which I will post soon.  I normally cook dal and bottle gourd separate but you can also cook both together just make sure when you mash the dal the bottle gourd pieces should not get mashed, if you do that carefully it can be done.
