    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!

Curds and Whey Soup with Pumpkin and Drumstick leaves


This soup is so simple to make and packed with all wholesome and sattvic ingredients. Perfect winter soup to boost your immunity!


    ▪    6 cups whole milk
    ▪    2 cups yogurt whey (or juice from 2 lemons)
    ▪    2 cups chopped pumpkin
    ▪    bunch of fresh drumstick leaves
    ▪    2 tbsp ghee
    ▪    1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger
    ▪    1/2 tsp mustard seeds
    ▪    1/2 tsp cumin seeds
    ▪    1 tsp turmeric powder
    ▪    1 tsp fresh ground pepper
    ▪    salt to taste


  1. First bring 6 cups of milk to a boil. Once it begins to boil add the yogurt whey. If you do not have yogurt whey then you can also use fresh lemon juice to curdle the milk.

  2. The milk should instantly curdle.

  3. Turn off the heat and separate the curds and whey by pouring through a colander with a large bowl underneath to catch the whey. Set aside.

  4. In a large pot heat the ghee.

  5. Then add the mustard and cumin seeds. When the seeds start to spatter add the minced ginger.

  6. Cook for about 30 seconds, then add the chopped pumpkin, turmeric powder and fresh ground pepper.

  7. Stir fry for a few more seconds and then add the whey that you just made. Bring the soup to a boil and continue boiling until the pumpkin is cooked and soft when you put a fork through it.

  8. When the pumpkin has fully cooked add the drumstick leaves and cook for another 5 minutes or until the drumstick leaves are soft but not black in color.

  9. When the drumstick leaves are cooked turn the heat off and add the crumpled curds that you just made and salt to taste. That is it!

  10. Serve with a side of rice or chapatis and you are ready to offer to Krsna with love and devotion!
