Ivy gourd leaves are good for stomach to reduce acidity. This was told by one of my friend.  I had it regularly for a period of one month and 50% of my stomach related problems were solved.

  • Onion - 1/2 (finely chopped)
  • Moong dal - 2 tblsp

  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Asafoetida - 1/8 tsp
  • Green Chilies - 2 (chopped)
  • Salt - to taste
  • Oil - 2 tsp


  1. Heat oil in a kadai and add the cumin seeds.
  2. When it splutters, add the chopped green chilies, onion, garlic pods and sauté for a minute.
  3. Add the moong dal and sauté for another two minutes.
  4. Add the chopped leaves, salt, turmeric powder, asafoetida and sauté till everything is well cooked.
