  1. Heat the ghee in a pressure cooker, add the bottle gourd and mava and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add the sugar, cardamom powder, 2 tbsp of warm milk and 2 tbsp of hot water, mix well and pressure cook on a high flame for 2 whistles.
  3. Allow the steam to escape using quick release method, ( refer handy tip ) before opening the lid. Serve hot garnished with almonds, pistachio nuts and raisins.

Handy tip:

  1. Quick release method: also called the cold-water release method, it is used to release pressure quickly. To use this method, remove the pressure cooker from the burner, place in the sink and run cold water gently over the lid until the steam dissipates.
  2. When putting the pressure cooker in the sink, tilt the handle up so the water flows away from you. Quick release works best for foods where you need to control the timing and degree of cooking.
