We can prepare lots of recipes with bottle gourd starting from curries, chutneys including the sweets. It has got so many medicinal values. The juice is given to treat the urinary disorders. In olden days, people used to use this dried vegetable as bottles.

Sorakaaya / Lauki Halwa

Sugar - 1/2
Milk - 1 cup
Cashews - 10
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Green Food Colour - Pinch (Optional)

Grated bottle gourd and sugar


Heat a pan with ghee.
Fry the cashews till golden brown.
You can either keep them aside and then add the grated bottle gourd or you can add the bottle gourd to the fried cashews itself.

When the raw smell disappears and the bottle gourd gets transparent, then add milk.
When you feel the bottle gourd is cooked, then add sugar and mix every thing.
At this point add the food colour.

Slowly stir in between until the mixture becomes thick and leaves the sides.

When it reaches the desired consistency, remove from fire.
