ABOUT Lauki (Bottle gourd) ka kheer RECIPE

Every Saturday, I try to make some snack for my mother in law and father in law. The criteria being that it should be soft and non gritty. As they have difficulty in chewing solid foods. Invariably, every time I end up making a sweet dish for them. This time it was lauki ka kheer or bottlegourd dessert.
