'To add some nutrients to your summer dessert, make Kheer with Lauki (Bottle Gourd)' says Holistic Nutritionist Shikha Mahajan.
Lauki (Bottle Gourd) is a perfect thirst quencher due to the high antioxidants and minerals. It has a cooling effect on the body and keeps the stomach heat low. The high amount of water content in lauki keeps the body hydrated and helps to beat the heat. Extremely high in potassium and iron, lauki also helps control weight and hypertension in check, aids digestion, keeps anxiety and sleep disorders away and helps prevent premature greying of hair.
