Sambar Recipe - protein rich dish

I am all about finding tasty vegetarian foods which are packed full of goodness and easy to make, and what a find this is!

Ash Gourd (Winter Melon), the health benefits...

What is Ash Gourd? Ash gourd, Benincasa hispida, is a unique melon eaten mostly in India and China. It is often cubed and added to soups in Asian cooking.
