Dudhi Raita

Dudhi is a cooling vegetable and good in summer. Purchased dudhi after a long time with no idea what I will prepare with it. Two days back , when I published a recipe,my cousin messaged asking me for a recipe with vellarikka. With the lockdown no vellarikka available, I had only dudhi. So here’s a recipe with dudhi, which is similar to vellarikka. Try it out and let me know, I am sure it will taste the same as vellarikka.


Dudhi — 1 cup

Curd — 2 cups

Pomegranate — 1/4 cup

Green chili — 1

Cumin pwd — 1/4 teaspoon

Salt — 1/2 teaspoon.


Peel the skin and remove the seeds from the center. Grate the dudhi. Add salt , 1/4 glass of water to the dudhi and cook for 5 minutes. Remove and strain the cooked dudhi to remove the excess water. Cool it. Whisk the curd to get a smooth texture. Now add the cooled dudhi, chopped green chili, pomegranate, cumin pwd, salt to the whisked curd, mix well. Enjoy this raita with pulav, parotha.
