Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Turia is well loved by Indians. Ridge gourd is extremely rich in dietary fiber. Turai is disliked by many of us due to its unusual appearance.  So, it has been made more delicious and nutritious by adding it to moong dal. Moong dal is one of the easiest dals to digest and also provides plenty of proteins and iron.
