  4. In the same vessel add ghee, add washed, peeled and grated Bottlegourd (ghiya).
  5. You can squeeze out the water of ghiya after grating it. Though I haven’t.
  6. Saute the grated bottle gourd in ghee for a few minutes and add Milk.
  7. Keep stirring on a low flame. When it has almost dried, add khoya, sugar and cardamom powder and half of the nuts that we had fried.
  8. Continue stirring till it completely dries up and ghee would float and the aroma of prepared halwa will refresh the air.
  9. Garnish with the rest of nuts and serve hot or chilled as you prefer.
My Tip: This recipe requires proper measurement of the ingredients or else you would end up with a new fusion dessert. So please stick to the quantities taken.
