Coccinias or ivy gourds are light green, elongated oval shaped, thick-skinned vegetables that have white flesh that is red when ripe.
Ivy gourds are high in water content and low in calories. They also contain vitamins A, C, B1 and B2, proteins, potassium, calcium, iron and dietary fibre. They aid "digestion" and help battle diabetes. They minimize "free radicals" in the body, and help increase immunity and aid "endocrine gland" functions.
These are used in making curries, "sabjis", juices, and are used as main course accompaniments.
