Method
1. I suggest not to mix bottle gourd juice with any other vegetable juice. (My nutrition specialist advice)l1 2. To prepare a healthy bottle gourd juice, take a fresh bottle gourd, and taste a slice to ensure it is not bitter. Chop into small pieces along with the skin.Slice amla into pieces.Chop ginger and mint leaves. l2 3. Combine all powders and salt in a bowl. Set everything before you are into process.Now put them into the juicer or our normal blender with a cup of water and sweet corn water for 2-3 minutes. You can also strain the juice and can also add a pinch of salt or pepper to enhance the taste.
4. Now squeeze some amount of lemon juice in the strained sorakkai or lauki juice.Strain (optional) into individual glasses and serve chilled. IMG_20131128_071256 Notes
