Lauki Chana Dal ki Sabzi or Bottle Gourd & Lentils Curry is a healthy dish. This is full of fiber and protein. Bottle gourd is a high source of dietary fiber and lentils are one of the richest source of proteins. So you will get high fiber and high protein.

Lentils have a special place in Indian cuisine. Its such a versatile item, it can be used in every dish you make. It can be used as appetizer, as dal, as curry as soup as flour batter for crepes, for fritters etc etc. They are count less actually. One speciality of lentils is it’s always best accompany to the staple food of regional cuisine. Okay I ll explain. In east India staple food is rice. So we have best accompany Dal. In north india staple food is roti. What’s the best combination you have heard of North? Isn’t it Dal Roti. (When I say dal roti, one song comes to my mind. Dal roti khao prabhu ke gunn gaao 🙂 ) In south its sambar rice. They are light but since high protein keeps you full for longer, they actually helps in reducing appetite and craving for food.
