Delicious Veg Kebabs

i love spicy and fried food like many of you. This time I am sharing one more appetizer. Its the most innovative recipe of my mom. We gujaratis eat 'muthiya' which is a steamed dumplings like stuff made up with calabash or bottle gourd (Dudhi or lauki). Dudhi is very nutritious vegetable.


1 lemon
1 teasppn sesame seeds
1 teaspoon Turmeric
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 tablespoon salt
3 crushed green chillies
1/2 kg Bottle gourd
1/2 cup wheat floor(ata)
1 tabelspoon gram floor(besan)
1 tablespoon oil

For Seasoning and Garnish
some corriender leaves

Most men in traditional Indian families live life of parasites

One of my colleague proposed a different caste girl for marriage. Impressed by her confidence, self drive and intelligence with beauty, he feel in love. But when it comes to marriage, in India, people who live with orthodox family members are more calculative. Moreover they are afraid, afraid of change and afraid of the constant nagging from family and society. The girl he proposed, preferred not to stay with his parents. Not because she had issues with them but because she wanted to live for herself, I don't find anything wrong in that. The act to serve elders should be out of respect and less compelling or forceful. I am sure, very few traditional thinking Indians would agree to this. Others would agree but just to show off.
