Over to +Sneha Jain   


 As the name goes, we gonna make Greeeeen Halwa ! Go Green ! We shall use bottle gourd & make a healthy halwa. This is a different way to use this vegetable. I am not adding Khoya, milk maid which are processed foods. Shall use the natural & always available things yet make tasty & healthy one.


 2 cups grated bottle gourd
 1 cup Warm Milk
 4 tbsp Ghee
  ½ cup sugar
  2 pinch Cardamom powder
  2 tsp Ghee roasted dry fruits (almonds & cashews)
  Green food color (optional, not used here)

Method of Preparation

  •  Peel the bottle gourd & grate it.
  •  Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan, add the grated bottlegourd & sauté for 20 mins. Keep stirring in-between (until the raw flavor completely cooked & its becomes much tender)
  • Now add warm milk & add food color if needed.
  • Cook for about ½ an hour, stirring in-between till all the milk is absorbed and halwa becomes dry.
  • Then add sugar & mix well. Cook for about 5 mins.
  •  Add roasted nuts & cardamom powder, mix & serve hot.


  • Always use heavy bottom pan, otherwise halwa will stick to the bottom of the pan and it will burn.
  •  Keep stirring in between while making halwa.
