Bottle Gourd Kheer

Posted on Updated on

Bottle gourd as all of you know has a lot of medicinal qualities and is widely used for Jaundice patients’ diet. We prepare curry, kheer ( without milk ) and also gravy from this vegetable, some of which I have put up before, namely – Muthia, Peel Chutney and Bottle gourd peel curry on this blog. Today I am putting up the Bottle gourd Kheer. One needs very tender Bottle gourd to prepare this kheer. People prepare it in their own way and this is my version of the same.

What you need to have:

1. Grated Bottle gourd – 2 cups

2. Jaggery – As per taste

3. Cardamom powder – 1/2 Teaspoon

4. Resins – A handful (any other dry fruits of your choice)

5. Grated cashews – A handful

6. Maida – 1 Teaspoon

7. Thick milk – 2 cups or more
