Lauki paneer ki sabji Dudhi paneer sabzi or lauki sabzi is an easy and slightly spiced version of lauki sabzi. Lauki is also known as a bottle gourd or opo squash in English. In some other Indian languages, lauki is known as ghiya, dudhi, sorakaya, sorakkai etc. It is one of the healthiest vegetables and is excellent to have during summers.

 learnt this Punjabi lauki recipe from my mother-in-law. I added paneer to it as my daughters are not very fond of lauki ki sabji. We usually make this sabzi slightly spicy as the spiciness goes well with the bland taste of lauki. The recipe I have shared is not spicy. You can always add more green chillies, red chilly powder and garam masala powder for a spicy taste.

In this recipe I added dry fruits and cream to make it more tastier and healthier. though if you like simple lauki ki sabji then you can leave dry fruits and cream. People specially kids have an aversion to this vegetable but belive me once you taste this sabzi you will love it.

Finally, I would like to suggest you few more simple recipes from my blog for your daily meal menu
