Ingredients to make Lauki Halwa / Bottlegourd Fudge

  • Lauki / Bottle gourd (finely grated) - 1 cup
  • Ghee / Clarified butter - 1 - 1/2 tablespoons
  • Condensed Milk - 1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons
  • Milk - 2 tablespoons
  • Cardamom (crushed) - 2
  • Raisins - 15
  • Green Food color (optional) - 2-3 drops
  • Chopped almonds (to garnish) - 1 tablespoon

How to make Lauki Halwa / Bottlegourd Fudge

  1. In a non stick pan, heat ghee. Add raisins and fry for a few seconds. Remove and set aside.
  2. In the remaining ghee, add grated lauki and fry for 8-10 minutes or till water evaporates and the raw smell goes.
  3. Add condensed milk and mix well. Cook for 2 minutes. Add milk and mix again. Cook for 2 more minutes. Add crushed cardamom, food color and fried raisins. Mix again and cook till the halwa gets thick.
  4. Serve warm or cold, garnished with chopped almonds.
  5. Add 6 tbsp sugar, (or adjust to taste) mix again. Add crushed cardamom and dried fruits. Cook till thick.
My Tip: Grate the bottle gourd very finely. I recommend using a non stick pan for making this halwa to avoid sticking while frying the bottle gourd/lauki. Add any dried fruit of your choice. If you do not want to use condensed milk then boil 1 cup of milk till a bit thick. Fry lauki as given in the recipe. Add the fried lauki to the thick milk and mix well.
