This recipe will give you 1400 grams of barfi.

Making methai, sweets and desserts with vegetables is not new in Indian cuisine or around the world.

Carrots are used to make halwa and carrot cake. Parwal is used to make methai (indian sweets) in Uttar pradesh, petha (ash gourd) is used to make petha methai, potato is used to make aloo ka halwa, pumpkin is used to make methai and pumpkin cake.

Veggies in desserts is just a mind set, we just cant get used to the thought BUT it tastes yummy.

Steps

1
Done

Peel and grate the lauki (bottle gourd) on from the thicker end of the grater. Make sure you peel and keep the lauki in chilled water and also grate it directly into chilled water. This way it won’t turn brown. 2kg of lauki after peeling and grating should give you approximately 1100 grams of grated lauki or 6cups.

2
Done

Pour milk into a pan and bring it to a boil. Add the grated lauki(bottle gourd) to it. Cook them together on high heat till milk reduces to ¼th.
At this stage add sugar, cardamom powder and edible green food colour. Keep cooking till all of the liquid is absorbed and the lauki comes together. Lightly grease a pan about 12” long, 6” wide and 1”in height, with the ghee on all sides.
Remove the lauki barfi from the heat and pour into the mould. Spread and press it down together. Sprinkle with chopped dried nuts. Let it cool completely and then refrigerate it for at least an hour. Cut it into squares, remove and serve it on to a platter.

Done

Tip - Keep the lauki refrigerated for few hours and then use it, this way it won’t oxidise and turn brown immediately upon grating.
