I learned this recipe from my mom,its so simple and goes well with steamed rice and roti.Bottle guard is a water content veggie which has more health benefits.Yoga guru's says people who are in diet should drink a glass of raw bottle guard juice early in the morning immediately after brushing.It helps to cut down the fat content in the body.

  1. Bottle guard pieces(skin pealed)-3 cups
  2. Turmeric-1/4Th spoon
  3. Roasted sesame seed powder-1 table spoon
  4. Roasted dhaniya powder-1 1/2 teaspoon
  5. Green chili paste-1 1/2 teaspoon
  6. Salt-to taste
  7. Oil-1 table spoon
  8. Cumin-1/2 teaspoon
  9. Mustard-1/2 teaspoon

  1. Heat oil in a pan and make seasoning,add bottle guard pieces
  2. fry for few minutes and close the lid,moisture in the bottle guard helps to cook the pieces
  3. Cook until it gets soft,now add the powders and green chili paste
  4. fry for 5 minutes and serve hot with rice

TIP: While making vegetable juice,instead of adding water add the water content veggies like bottle guard,snake guard or cucumber.it gives good taste
