Ingredients

How to Make

  • Peel gourds ensuring that no flesh is lost. Cut them into 4 inch long chunks.
  • Grate and squeeze out excess moisture before measuring.
  • In a deep, heavy bottomed pan, heat the ghee and saute the gourd in it till it turns translucent.
  • Add the sugar and boiled milk cooled to room temperature. Reduce the heat to low and stir.
  • Let the ingredients slow cook for as long as it takes for the milk to evaporate, and only the solids are left as little chunks mingling with the gourd.
  • While cooking, add more milk if you think the pudding needs to thicken or is drying out too quickly.
  • Cooking will take 1-2 hours. Make sure you stir the halva frequently so it does not stick to the bottom of the vessel or char.
  • As it thickens, it becomes more difficult to stir.
  • When it is still moist to touch, but not liquid, it is done.
  • Mix in the almonds and raisins and spices. Remove from the heat.
  • Serve hot with puris or polis or cold as a pudding. Garnish with almonds.
