Ingredients:
----------------------------
Bottle gourd/Lauki(grated) --> 1 cup
Skim Milk --> 3/4 cup
Bottle gourd juice -->1/4 cup
Sugar --> 4 to 5 Tbsp (as per taste)
Milk powder --> 10 Tbsp
Ghee(clarified butter) --> 1 Tbsp
Cardamom powder -->1/2 tsp
Cinnamon powder --> a pinch
Poppy seeds --> 1 tsp
Almonds(slivered) --> to garnish

Method:
----------
  1. Squeeze out the excess water from the grated bottle gourd and keep aside.
  2. Take another bowl and add sugar,milk powder,milk,juice of the grated bottle gourd,cinnamon powder,poppy seeds and cardamom powder.
  3. Take another microwave oven safe bowl and add ghee and the grated bottle gourd and mix well.Now microwave this mixture on high for 3 mins stirring once after 2 mins.
  4. Now add the milk mixture to the grated bottle gourd mix and microwave it on high for 5 mins stirring once every 2 and 1/2 mins.
  5. Your pipping hot bottle gourd kheer is ready,garnish with slivered almonds and serve cold or rather chilled.
Notes:
--------
  • Fill the microwave safe bowl only with 1/4 of its height to avoid spilling over.
  • Can use full fat milk for a creamier kheer.
  • The original recipe calls for 1 cup milk but i reduced it to 3/4 cup to accomodate the squeezed out juice to make it more healthy.
