Lauki raita is a condiment that hails from the state of Punjab, but is also prepared in Northern states of the country. It is also known as doodhi raita in Gujarat and Maharashtra; and is a curd-based condiment with a few spices added to it.

The ghiya raita acts as a coolant and hence is a good condiment to go with spicy dishes during the summer time. Lauki is known for its cooling effect, which added along with curd, cools the body. It also helps to restore the nutrients in the body and is hence considered to be extremely healthy.
