How to make Lauki Kheer Recipe - Bottle Gourd Pudding

  1. To begin making the Lauki Kheer Recipe (Healthy Bottle Gourd Pudding), firstly boil milk in a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat. Bring the milk to a boil. Once the milk comes to a boil, turn the heat to low and simmer till it is reduced to 1/2 its quantity.

  2. Once it is almost close to condensed state, add in the saffron, cardamom, almonds and sugar. Stir well and simmer until reduced in quantity. 

  3. While boiling, keep stirring it occasionally so that the milk does not get burnt and scrape the sides as well. Once done, set the milk aside. 

  4. Heat ghee in another heavy bottomed pan; add in the grated lauki, and saute on medium heat until the lauki turns soft and tender.

  5. Stir in the cooked lauki to the condensed milk and simmer for another 10 minutes, until the flavors come out from the lauki kheer and the khee is thickened. Turn off the heat and transfer to a serving bowl. The Lauki Kheer will thicken as it is kept aside to cool. 

  6. Garnish the Laukhi Kheer with chopped pistachios and serve chilled. 

  7. You can serve the Lauki Kheer hot or cold as a dessert when you have a guests at home or during festivals and special occasions, or after an everyday meal of Hyderabadi Vegetable Biryani and Boondi Raita.
