Doi Potol – Dahi Parwal – Bengali Vegetarian Recipe

This recipe is specially dedicated to my mom. She is an expert to make this Doi Potol, and since my childhood, I am a huge fan of this yummylicious dish. It’s a best recipe to beat the summer heat, but I love to cook this in any time of the year. In this curry, potol or pointed gourds are cooked in thick yogurt gravy. It’s a very easy to cook recipe and calls for minimum spices, yet it tastes delicious. Bengalis are famous for their low on spices yet tasty dishes. This is one such recipe comes from mom’s kitchen and traditionally Bengali. For more Bengali recipes, search here .
