Ever heard someone say, “I love turai”? Maybe never! Also called ridge squash, turai is one of the most common vegetables in an Indian household during the summers. Still, it doesn’t manage to win hearts like many other vegetables (read: beetroot, carrot, peas, and potatoes). But let’s admit that we cook turai every other week. Why do you ask that? Turai is notorious for its bland taste, but has an enriched nutritional profile that benefits our overall health. That’s right! Turai belongs to the gourd family and is best known for its ‘cooling’ properties. Plus, it’s packed with vitamin C, riboflavin, zinc, and other essential nutrients. These factors make turai a great option for weight loss, reducing body heat, controlling blood sugar levels et al. Turai also contains antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties that help us detoxify and boost immunity against various seasonal diseases.
