Can you guess it? Bottle gourd / Doodhi / Lauki

100_6796

You know this vegetable. Only that the shape of this one is unusual. Can you guess the name? I'll go have my glass of milk in the meanwhile. ;-)

-------------------------------------------------------

It is bottle gourd, Folks. In a different shape and size. 'Milk' was a clue (Doodhi), although a pretty lousy one. But I tried (!) .....
Thank you all for coming up with interesting guesses, no matter right or wrong. :)

Looks like gooseberries (nellikkai in Tamil) but I suppose it cant be really. Some kinda squash, perhaps? :)

Tinda ? but looks bigger for tinda.

My guess is 'Punjabi Tinda', but can't really say coz I can't gauge the size from the photo.

They look a little like those small green Thai eggplants. Maybe a white version of those?

I am pretty sure it is "Bottle Gourd".

I have to wimp out on this one Vaishali... over at RP's I failed this test miserably! ;)

I'll wait for the recipe...are you gonna mix them up with that glass of milk for JFI?

Hi Vaishali,
Is it "Peta?? or petha??"

Meeta said...

Hey Vaish,
I think it's from the gourd family too or squash family!

I believe this is Gia (pronounced ghee-ya) - I believe you find this mostly in north India (when in India).
