Dosai with Bottle gourd ?? sounds crazy isn't it? Well, its rich in fibre, low in saturated fat and cholesterol! these are the 3 things which pave way to good health and weight loss. Then, why not include in all possible ways. Though we normally use this in curries and gravies… including in dosai was pretty daunting to me. But my aunt from whom I learned this recipe guaranteed good results and it did.

Parboiled wheat commonly known as burghoul or bulgar in middle and near Eastern countries, it is a precooked product, so it is ready to consumption. It is produced from durum wheat. Burghoul wheat is basically whole wheat that has been washed, steamed, dehulled, parched or dry-cooled, cracked, then sifted into various forms. The people of the Middle East never had an abundance of fuel so they had to find a way to shorten the cooking time for their meals.
