    Snake Gourd Pasta Sauce - Tomato free!

    Serves 2

    Did you know that a fully ripened snake gourd vegetable transforms into a wonderful tomato replacement? The pulp surrounding the seeds are a bright red color and have a sweet flavor. The orange creamy pulp that is on the skin has a very nice mild pumpkin flavor and has the texture of very creamy mashed potatoes. These two pulps blended together create a smooth sauce and when adding yogurt whey (the sour flavor) it creates a perfect tomato sauce! So delicious!

    Here is the wonderful dish I put together together today. Mostly all ingredients came from the garden!

Buttermilk Puris


These puris are crispy and soft! They go great with any soup or curry dish!


  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk, or you can use plain yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Combine the buttermilk and baking powder.


  2. Mix together using a whisk then let it sit for 3 minutes. You will notice that the mixture begins to bubble.

  3. In a separate bowl add the flour and salt. Then just like when making chapatis, add the buttermilk mixture a little at a time while mixing the flour into a dough.

  4. When you have formed a nice dough, let it sit with a cover for 30 minutes.

  5. After 30 minutes, roll the dough into little balls, again just like when making chapatis.

  6. Next roll each ball out into a thin circle. If you are working alone, it is best to roll out all the dough first so that you can concentrate on frying. Heat the frying oil to 375F/190C.

  7. Now time to fry them up! Place one chapati into the oil and fry one side for 30-45 seconds and flip over and fry the other side. Use a utensil to push the puri into the oil while it is cooking.

  8. When the puris turn a slight golden color, they are done. Place on a paper towel to drain excess oil. Continue this process until you have finished making all the puris.

  9. I served these Buttermilk Puris with "Easy Potato Curry". Now you are ready to offer to Kṛṣṇa with love and devotion!
