#Recipe leftover turmeric rice, bimbli and prawns wrapped in bottle gourd leaves from my @ffoodinstitute @fao #climatesupper .


High in calcium and phosphorus lauki or bottle gourd leaves are often discarded or not available in retail because of the lack of demand. Ask your farmer for all parts of the produce and be a #zerowastehero . Bottle gourd leaves are used in Ayurveda in the panchakarma treatment, they are also used for the treatment of jaundice, diabetes and multiple skin diseases. A super easy veggie to grow, this one is a climber!

Recipe-

Ingredients
1. Bottle gourd leaves (you can substitute for pumpkin leaves too)
2. Bimbli chutney (using 10 bimbli, 2 inch ginger, 5-6 cloves garlic, 1 onion, 1/4 bunch coriander, 4 chillies, salt to taste)
3. Leftover rice with freshly grated turmeric
4. Prawns (replace with fish, eggplant, veggies)

Method

On the flip side of the leaf,spread the chutney as you would spread on toast leaving the sides empty.
Spoon 1 tbsp rice on the chutney
Place 3 prawns
Wrap the leaf as you would a present.
Set aside flip side down. And repeat the process with as many leaves as you would like to serve.

Heat a grill pan on medium heat after seasoning it, place the wrapped leaves flip side down on the pan and weigh it down with a bowl, flip after 3 mins and heat the other side for another 2 mins.
Serve hot!

We have over 30000 edible species of crops available to us yet we focus on less than 1 percent with 60 percent of the worlds calories coming from just 4 of them. By using lesser-known crops we can help shift the food system by encouraging the growth and supply of a more diverse range of crops. This agricultural diversity is good for soil health, adds nutritional value to our diets, builds climate resilience and opens up new routes to market for small-holder farmers and specialist producers. Let’s eat a more diverse range of produce in the three opportunities to make a difference we have per day!
