peeling dudhi skin is very important as it gives a bitter flavour in sweet dishes also deseeding the dudhi is better as it wont get too soft.

Hello. Dudhi is a vegetable known as bottle gourd in English, lauki in urdu, Dudhi-Bhopala in Marathi, Sorekayi in Kannada and Sorakkay in Tamil. If you still dont get it then please feel free to ask again.
