When I started giving sabzi-roti to Devansh for lunch, I would more often than not cook a vegetable from the gourd family—bottle gourd, pumpkin, little gourd, or snake gourd. Toddlers find these vegetables easy to chew plus they are easy to digest. Even now that he’s almost four, Devansh doesn’t find these sabzis boring as most of us grownups do. For instance, you won’t catch my husband eating any of the vegetables mentioned above.
So I make them for lunch when hubby’s away for work. Pumpkins (kaddus) are high in water content and are a good source of minerals and vitamins, making them an ideal summer food. At the risk of sounding preachy, I would say do include this nutritional kaddu sabzi in your diet even if you find it boring, you will cultivate the taste for it. The numerous health benefits derived from it definitely make the effort worthwhile. Plus it’s not a labor-intensive recipe, like most of my recipes this one too can be cooked real fast. 🙂
