This gourd, which comes in a variety of shapes has a mild cucumber flavour, and can be enjoyed in much the same way as marrows.
Select dudhi with silky smooth pale green skin. However, please do note that depending on variety, the skin colour can vary from pale green to cream. The skin texture may also be smooth or ridged. Avoid those which are soft at the ends.
Dudhi can be used to prepare a variety of dishes, serving as a starter, main, and even dessert!
