Doodhi Ka Halwa (Bottle Gourd Halwa)

Doodhi ka halwa is a variation of gajar ka halwa. Bottle gourd is a one of the favorite vegetable and have very much health benefit. Bottle gourd cooked with milk, sugar and flavor of cardamom powder. Thanks for my lovely mom for teaching me this yummy and irresistible dish.

Milk  - 2 cups
Sugar - 1 cup
Cashew nuts - 4-6
Raisin - a few
Crashed cardamom - a pinch
Ghee - 1 tbsp

Method :

Peel and discard the seeds of bottle gourd. Grate the gourd.

Heat a tablespoon of ghee in a pan, fry cashew nut and raisin until they turn brown in colour. Keep them aside.

Now add grated bottle gourd, fry it until raw smell goes stirring continuously. 

Pour in the milk and bring to boil. Let the doodhi cook on medium till the milk is nearly absorbed. Now add sugar and cook it for 10 minutes on a medium flame.

When the halwa become thick then add crushed cardamom and nuts. Stir well. Turn off the gas.
