Who does not like to dig into kheer, the all-time favourite desi dessert! But, if that lovely treat has left back a stain of guilt in your heart, then perhaps you can try this kheer with a difference! A reasonably healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth occasionally, this recipe makes use of doodhi and low-fat milk to make a satiating kheer.
While bottle gourd is famed to be a low-cal veggie, the use of low-fat milk further brings the calorie count down, making the Lauki ki Kheer as heart friendly as possible. The amount of sugar has also been substantially reduced, and together with cardamom powder, it provides just the right flavour to make this a really enjoyable treat.
