Tips to make delicious lauki halwa
  1. Boil bottle gourd first in milk to bring the milky taste in halwa and get rid of raw flavor and smell
  2. Then cook in pure ghee by adding sugar, khoya, and dry fruits, this step helps to enhance the taste of halwa and reducing the cooking time
  3. Avoid using bottle gourd that’s too sour or bitter, slight tang is just fine
