Hi Archana,

You could call it Laikhi Kadhi too, in sindhi we call it Dahi Ji Kaadu and the direct hindhi translation was Lauki Dahi Waala so thats why I called it that...:)

Wow Medhaa! What a scrumptious recipe!
I just made it and tasted and I am going back again for more and more as mentioned by you.
I had no idea that Lauki can taste so good when made non-conventionally :o)
I believe that I cna now make kadi also myself soon.
Now I have to control myself until dinner time to save it for my husband ;)
I am looking forward to trying more recipes from you blog.
