Parwal (Trichosanthes dioica), also known as pointed gourd, is a vine plant in the family Cucurbitaceae, similar to cucumber and squash, though unlike those it is perennial. It is a dioecious vine plant with heart-shaped leaves and is grown on a trellis. The fruits are green with white or no stripes.
Parwal is high in antioxidants, vitamins A and C that help to fight with the free radical molecules responsible for ageing. The seeds present in the pointed gourd help to ease stool and reduce constipation problems. So, this veggie is highly recommended for curing the constipation problem
