Heerekai (Ridge Gourd) soup

Ridge Gourd soup

A great recipe from Tarladalal’s recipe book! Never had I thought of this combination which is simply delicious and filling. Made some variations from the original recipe, I havent added heavy cream, wanted to keep it simple and healthy.


Peeled and chopped ridge gourd– 2 cups

Dill leaves- 3/4 cup

milk- 1/4 cup

Salt and pepper to taste


Add ridge gourd, dill leaves and 3/4 cup of water in a pan, cover and cook for 8-10 minutes. Once cooled, blend everything together in a blender to form a smooth purée. Add milk and bring to boil and serve hot with salt and pepper!
