LAUKI AUR CHANNA DAL KI SABJI

Recently I have posted a recipe which I am eating regularly now a days and believe me it is really effective. I have lost 8 kgs weight in 3 months with the help of exercise and diet plan. I am just waiting for the day when I will see the weighing machine to show 52 kgs when I stand on it.

Lots say that diet foods are boring but I don’t believe this. I am on diet from past 3 months but I never got bored. I did not restrict myself from any food, but I have reduced quantity of those foods which have lots of fat and carbohydrate in it. Here is another one recipe which you can eat with roti and it has hardly 100 calorie in it.

Hi Subhashini!
I've been following your blog for a while; reading from the US, in Boston.

What kind of squash can be substituted for a bottle gourd? I'm not able to get one here.
