Dhurru....

C'mon, Gimme a break.

Its not absolutely true. It is somewhat.

Guvaar is sold everywhere and almost all gujjus eat guvaar shaak. I gurantee you must have too. Ask your parents.

There are lots of gujju recipes for making guvaarsing "shaak" in our gujarat.

For example..

Guvaar-pumkin.
Guvaar in dahi tadka
Guvaar with sesame and garlic tadkaa.

It is true that guvaar was being used as cattle feed, but because in the past it was cheap and wholesome as a cattle feed for poors.

But when guvaar is fresh and komal it is widely used as vegatable. Its somewhat good in taste too (depending upon how you prepare).


The guvaar used for cattle feed is basically matured and hard to cook ones like that.

And thats how gujjus call guvaar as cattlefeed in slang or abuse.
But it is widely used as sabji.



BTW...

Google for it and you will see it more as vegatable than cattlefeed.
