A traditional Punjabi mithai, lauki ka halwa 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! 

Our lauki ka halwa recipe is a quick dudhi ka halwa made with just 5 ingredients, lauki, milk, sugar, mawa (khoya) and ghee. 

lauki ka halwa and gajjar ka halwa are the most popular halwa’s to make. This quick lauki ka halwauses very little ghee to make. You must use freshly grated dudhi in the halwa and we have not removed the water. When the dudhi has become soft while cooking then add the sugar. 

I know some busy-bees who would stop over at a sweetmeat stall, have a cup of lauki ka halwa and a samosa in lieu of a meal, and continue their work with full energy!

Besides sweet you can consume doodhi in a variety of other dishes like Doodhiya KheechDoodhi TheplasDoodhi Muthia , Doodhi and Chana Dal SubziBudijawand Doodhi Kheer.
