Dudhi Halwa (Bottle Gourd/Calabash halwa)

>> Sunday, July 11, 2010

Two days back I was in a mood to have something sweet, something light, as well. Then I thought, why not "Dudhi Halwa". This dessert is very easy to prepare, refreshing and tastes yummy!!
Although dudhi is used to make variety of dishes like curry, dal, raita and list goes on.. But when it comes to dudhi halwa, many of you guys will agree with me "it tastes awesome". Also, this recipe is healthy as I use low fat milk instead of khoya.

2 cups shredded dudhi (wash, peel & grate it)
1 cup low-fat milk (I've used 1%)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
10-12 unsalted roasted cashew
20-25 raisins
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
1 tbsp ghee

In a large pan heat ghee, add shredded dudhi, milk, cashews and raisins. Cover and cook on medium heat for about ten mins. Add powdered sugar and stir a few times. Uncover the pan, add ghee and stir for another 5 mins. Add cardamom powder and remove from heat.
Refrigerate if you like it cold or serve it hot.
