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 halwa uses 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 Kheech, Doodhi Theplas, Doodhi Muthia , Doodhi and Chana Dal Subzi, Budijaw and Doodhi Kheer.
- Heat the ghee in a deep non-stick kadhai, add the bottle gourd and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the sugar and milk and cover and cook on a slow flame for approx. 4 to 5 minutes,till the bottle gourd is soft.
- Add the khoya, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring continuously.
- Remove from the flame, garnish with chirongi nuts and allow to cool completely.
- Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
- Serve chilled.
