  • ½ of medium or 1 ¼ cup Lauki (bottle gourd or dudhi) grated
  • 1 tablespoon Ghee (Clarified butter)
  • 7-8 Cashew nuts broken
  • 2 cups Milk
  • ¼ cup Sugar
  • teaspoon Green cardamom seeds powder
  • ½ teaspoon Rose water



  • Wash the lauki, peel it. Cut into the half. Remove the seeds.
  • And grate it using grater (use bigger sized hole).
  • Squeeze out all the water by pressing it between your palms.

Making lauki ki kheer recipe:

  • Heat the ghee in a pan on medium heat.
  • Once hot fry the cashews till they are lightly browned. Drain the excess ghee and remove them into another bowl, keep it aside.
  • Now add grated lauki into the same pan and sauté till all the moisture from the lauki evaporates and also lauki gets cooked. Stir in between.
  • While lauki is cooking, heat the milk in a heavy bottom pan on another stove on medium heat. Let it come to a boil.
  • Once the lauki gets cooked, turn off the stove and keep it aside.
  • Once the milk comes to a boil, do stir it every 2 minutes and also scrape the sides of the pan and keep simmering the milk till it reduces slightly. we started with 2 cups, boil till it is about 1 ½ cups.
  • Then add cooked bottle gourd. Mix it and cook for about 4 minutes. by this time milk will get thick.
  • Then add sugar. Mix it.
  • Cook it with stirring in between till it thickens again (about 2-3 minutes).
  • Turn off the stove. How to check that kheer is ready? When you take kheer in a spoon and you pour it back, thickened milk and lauki should drop together. If milk and lauki look separated then let it thicken more.
  • Finally, add cardamom powder and rose water. Mix it.
  • Garnish with fried cashews.
