Bottle gourd sabji with duck egg


Bottle gourd has always been regarded as one of the most healthiest vegetables. Bottle gourd plant is a vine and bottle gourd looks like a bottle shaped and green in colour. Bottle gourd is called as lauki in Hindi and lau in Assamese. Bottle gourd has many health benefits as bottle gourd is rich in dietary fiber. As bottle gourd contains almost  92% water so it is good for juice extraction. Many different recipes can be made from bottle gourd. This is my second post on bottle gourd recipe . Here in this recipe I'm using Duck eggs. Duck eggs' shell are thicker than chicken eggs. Therefore duck eggs stay fresher for longer periods.
