Doodhi halwa or lauki ka halwa is actually a conventional dessert that everyone includes a reason to like-some for the flavor, some for the amazing benefits of doodhi and milk, and a few for the cozy experience it instils on the rainy day!  An extremely healthy recipe because it consists of lauki or bottle gourd, milk and dry fruits. Doodhi ka halwa is an extremely easy recipe however quite scrumptious and lip smacking. Doodhi referred to as bottle gourd, bottle squash, calabash gourd is actually a scrumptious veggie with large quantity of nutritive and health qualities. It is including a smooth gentle nutty taste that includes an overflowing flavor to hot curries along with cooling yoghurt recipes like raita. Bottle gourd or lauki is among the popular veggies found in southern India where you can use them in preparing coupled with lentils (particularly the chana dal) as well as found in planning the popular Pappu charu (hot and spicy dal in Andhra cuisine). Within the northern states of India, lauki can be used for planning the yummy kofta curry.

 

Lauki is really a flexible veggie really soothing and rejuvenating. Bottle gourd, among the fantastic veggie with plenty of health advantages is much like the unsung characters within the veggie family when most people tagged it a poor man’s veggie. More than the past decades numerous Ayurvedic and nature cure professionals have been discussing lots concerning this stunning veggie and its particular nutritive beliefs. Bottle gourd is abundant with vitamins and particularly in minerals which the body demands while in the summer. Cooked lauki is cooling, soothing and serves as diuretic. It can make you relax after consuming. Bottle gourd isn't just full of vital minerals, iron, protein and trace elements; additionally, it is full of fiber. Fiber is proven to be losing in the current eating habits, the lack of which is reason for not just constipation but other digestive complaints like flatulence as well as piles. Bottle gourd is an extremely great low-calorie veggie and you may make simple low calorie food using this.

 

 

Although you may do not much like the bottle gourd in almost any other type, you must agree that this Doodhi ka halwa tastes really delicious. For those who have didn't have it, you should try it. Generally, at restaurants they use khoya to provide a pleasant rich and creamy consistency and abundance to the halwa. The lauki ka halwa may also be well prepared with low-fat milk or condensed milk or ghee. This enhances its flavor and really should adore particularly when it's consumed warm. Couple of also provide it warm with a few Vanilla or Pistachio ice cream.

 

To make this lip smacking Doodhi halwa, first of all peel off and grate the bottle gourd. Have a pan and ghee, cashew nuts, almonds and raisins, combine it properly and cook until they alter the color after which add some grated bottle gourd and blend nicely. Allow it to cook for around 10 minutes in the slow flame whilst keep mixing it constantly. Include milk and blend. (If you would like add color and you may put in a little green color and keep mixing). Now include sugar to the bottle gourd mix after which include khoya and blend constantly for an additional 5 mins up until the halwa is prepared.

 

This is often made on Navratri fasting or ekadashi vrat. Lots of people consume lauki throughout the fasting, however some not. The halwa we purchase from the halwais or stores, that's somewhat green colored. Simply because they have added in green food color. I hardly ever use food colors within my cooking,

 

The Bottle gourd is green smooth skin along with a white inner flesh. Normally the round fruits are known as Calabash gourd and also the slim lengthy fruits are known as Bottle gourds. For preparing the Lauki ka halwa only use a smooth soft skin, pale green color free of any buts, spots and damage bottle gourd that needs to be firm to deal with. Bottle gourd does not take very long cooking and it is simple to make. The bottle gourds have been harvested for hundreds of years and they're, possibly among the original harvested by man. It may have originated from Africa exactly where it happens automatically because it also does in India. It's now broadly harvested over the tropics, particularly India. Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, China, tropical Africa and South America. The bottle gourd is a warm season crop and grows best. in a warm humid climate. It is among the preferred veggies in Indian delicacies and it has several health advantages. Although, this veggie is hated by the children and teenagers, old people eat it because of its advantages to maintain the best body and great health.
