Here is a traditional Hyderabadi delicacy, which is served at weddings and other grand functions. This unique kheer is made with lauki but you will never be able to guess that when you taste it!
Cooked with milk and mawa, and garnished with nuts, the lauki kheer has a fabulously rich mouth-feel and even richer flavour!
Rasgullas add another interesting dimension to this amazing dessert, while a tinge of rose adds to its irresistible appeal.
The Hyderabadi Lauki Kheer with Mini Rasgullas tastes best chilled, so you can prepare it in the afternoon, refrigerate it and serve it after dinner. Make sure you grate the bottle gourd just before adding it to the milk to avoid discolouration.
