Gujarati vegetarian cooking often revolves around centerpiece dishes like this one. They’re called shaak, a term for all manner of dry and saucy vegetable recipes showing off the creativity, improvisation and feel for seasonal produce that are the hallmarks of the region’s cuisine. Known elsewhere in India as lauki, ‘Doodhi’ is the Gujarati name for the bottle gourd, and means ‘milky’, probably due to the vegetable’s mild taste and creamy texture. Combined with the nuttiness of shelled, split black chickpeas (channa dal), it’s a soothing, buttery and rich alchemy of nutritious, entirely plant-based ingredients.
