A traditional mithai that everybody has a reason to like—some for the taste, some for the goodness of doodhi and milk, and some for the warm feeling it instills on a rainy day!
I know some busy-bees who would stop over at a sweetmeat stall, have a cup of halwa and a Punjabi Samosa in lieu of a meal, and continue their work with full energy!
Traditionally the doodhi is cooked in a pressure cooker, but this recipe uses the Microwave , reducing the time taken by 50 per cent! the authentic taste remains.
- Put the ghee in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 15 seconds.
- Add the bottle gourd, mix well and microwave on high for about 3 minutes.
- Add the sugar and khoya mix well and microwave on high for 5 minutes, stirring in between after 2½ minutes.
- Sprinkle the cardamom powder on top, dot with the fresh cream and microwave on high for 30 seconds.
- Cool for 5 to 10 minutes and then serve.
