LAUKI KHEER | BOTTLEGOURD KHEER RECIPE

     Lauki/ Sorrakai in tamil is a veggie which we use for making kootu. I never know that we can make sweet out of this veggies, till i tasted lauki halwa at my friend’s place. Then she told that we can make kheer out of this veggie too. Since this was interesting i wanted to give it a try and to my surprise this turned out so yummy and here comes the  recipe:

LAUKI 1/2 NO
MILK 1 LITRE
CONDENSED MILK 1/4 CUP
