Lauki Ki Kheer

This is my second recipe for last week BM 33 under book marked recipes from BM 32 month long marathon. I book marked some wonderful recipes from my BM friends. In that list this recipe is from Preeti s Simplytadka. She is a very talented memeber in our BM group who desined that beautiful logo for last month mega marathon.

                                                                     I book marked few recipes from her space, specially that  Pan ki chat recipe was realy factastic. Actualy I wanted to make that recipe for this theme but some ingredients I didn't have with me now so I cahanged my mind and tried this one.

                                                             This Lauki ki kheer was so delicious, every body liked it so much at home.When first time I made this kheer we find the raw smell of the lauki. Then second time I fried the vegetable with a tea sp of ghee. Second thing I changed is  I didn't add sugar. One more thing is Preeti's recipe is a fusion with chocolate, but I didn't use chocolate in mine.   so lets check the recipe.
Bottle gourd   ----   1 cup grated
Milk     ----  4 cups
Khoya (mawa)  ---   1/2 cup
Sugar   ----   3/4 cup
Ghee   --- 1 tab sp
Cardamom powder   --- 1 tea sp
Rose water   ----   few drops
Pistachios   ----   10 chopped (I used chopped cashewnuts)
1. Boil milk in a heavy bottom pan, bring to a full boil and reduce the heat to low and let the milk boil.
2. In the same time heat ghee in a fry pan add chopped cashewnut and fry till golden,remove and set a side.
3. Add grated lauki to the same ghee and fry till raw smell disappier.
4. Then add this  fried lauki to boling milk.Mix well and cook till milk become little thick.
5. Now great khoya and add this to milk and lauki mixture, mix well and cook for few minutes.
6. Add rose water, cardamom powder mix well and switch off the heat
7. Serve hot or chilled garnish with Fried cashewnuts.
