Description

Turia, turai, or ridge gourd (in English) is a favourite among various vegetable dishes in India. It can be described as a fine-looking vegetable with its striking dark green colour, and once you cut it open, you will see its white pulp with white seeds attached to a malleable, almost spongy flesh. The dark green skin should be peeled off, and you can slice it, cut it into small cubes, or even grate its meat according to your preference on how you want to use it on your Indian dish. We have some recipes that you can try at home to make the most of this humble and healthy vegetable. Check them below this description.
