Always wanted to know how to cook lauki. Thanks for the recipe and lovely picture. Lauki is considered a very healthy vegetable and a body coolant. Good for summer meals.

I usually don't like lauki. It needs to prepared with so many seasonings and spices. But with coconut and onion flavorings it should taste good.
