"I appreciated your recipe for Lau Doga Sukto- Bottle Gourd Stew (Bengali-vegetarian). I found bottle gourd and huge bunches of the stems & leaves at the Farmer's Market today (Berkeley, California). Bottle Gourd is unusual here in California and I've never cooked it before, so I was so happy to find your blog site Rice-n-Curry. Your recipe was delicious!"
