Lauki/Doodhi kheer(Bottlegourd Pudding)




Lauki is a very healthy vegetable as we all know.Apart from having the regular veggie dish one day I thought of giving this kheer a try,though I did not mention it to my hubby because I was sceptical aboout how it would taste :p We were amazed that the kheer turned out so delicious and now whenever I have lauki in my pantry my hubby wants to have this kheer.So if you have never heard of this kheer till now please give it a try :)

Ingredients -
chopped bottlegourd/lauki(1cup)
milk(500 ml/1packet)
sugar(1 cup/as per taste)
cardamom/elaichi powder(1tspn)
dryfruits-almonds/cashewnuts/raisins(optional)

Method -
Wash the lauki and peel off the outer skin.
Chop it into thin slices.
Boil water in a pot and put in the chopped lauki till it is soft.
Heat milk in a pan.
After it comes to a boil, add the cooked lauki.
Let it cook sometime in milk then add sugar as per taste.Add chopped dryfruits.
Sprinkle elaichi powder and take off from the heat.
Let it cool down.
Serve lauki kheer chilled or warm :)

  1. Hi Jyoti
    this lauki kheer really looks good...i always made lauki halwa but not lauki kheer...which type of lauki do u use for lauki kheer because for lauki halwa i prefer medium size lauki as small lauki halwa doesn't taste good.
