    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!

Fajitas Vegetarian style! Super delish!


    •    paneer cut into strips
    •    1 large sweet yam
    •    1 or 2 chiles to taste

    •    chili powder
    •    1 tbsp chopped cilantro/coriander
    •    chapatis or tortillas


  1. Peel and chop the yams into bite sized pieces.

  2. Then place them onto an oiled baking sheet. Drizzle on 1 tbsp of ghee and add a little salt, pepper and chill powder and then mix it together. Cover and bake for about 10 minutes.

  4. Heat 1 tbsp of ghee and grill the paneer strips with a little salt.


  5. Cook on medium high flame until nice and golden.

  9. After 8 minutes take the yams and chickpeas out of the oven. Cut open a yam to make sure it is cooked through. If not then cook a little longer. Now in a serving dish combine the grilled paneer strips, chopped cilantro/coriander and the yam and chickpea mixture. Stir all together and you are done!
