    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!

Govindas Mayonnaise


This amazing recipe is from "Govindas Vegetarian Cookbook", written by long time restaurant owner Sunanda Das. Sunanda Das has run a successful Govindas restaurant for the last 25 years and his restaurant is currently located in a 19th century chateau in a spiritual community called Radhadesh. For more recipes you can see his online cookbook at:



    •    1 1/3 cup unsweetened condensed milk
    •    1 cup sunflower oil
    •    4 tbsp lemon juice
    •    1 tsp whole black pepper, freshly ground
    •    1 tsp black mustard seeds, freshly ground
    •    1 tsp curry powder
    •    1 tsp hing, asafetida yellow cobra brand
    •    1 tsp turmeric
    •    1 tsp black salt, kala nimak
    •    1/2 tsp salt, preferably sea salt
    •    1 1/2- 2 tsp light brown sugar


  1. Put the condensed milk and the oil in a container. Preferably more high as wide. Follow with all the remaining ingredients and whisk briefly to dissolve salt, sugar and spices. I used a glass wide mouthed mason jar which I will also use to store the mayo in.

  2. Use a hand mixer, and stick it into the container. Turn it on and make sure that the whole mixture starts to flow around like a swirl or stream.

  3. Now add the lemon juice, slowly but steady, and in a few seconds, the mix becomes thick Mayonnaise.

  4. It happens very fast, just in a few seconds, so you have to be prepared to stop the mixer immediately to avoid a too thick consistency.

  5. Then all of a sudden, MAGIC! You have mayo!

  6. Nice and thick! Stays fresh in the fridge for 5-6 days.

  7. You can serve this on sandwiches and veggie burgers and can even mix with cold salad dishes! Hare Kṛṣṇa!
