Navratri season is on and we definitely look for different options to try. We usually have fried stuff during Navratri, since we have no other option left; however, Chef Ashwani Kumar Singh gives us this amazing Vrat recipe called Lauki (bottle gourd) ka saag.

Bottle gourd is healthy, light and the saag made from it is neither fried nor is too oily. Check out the recipe.
