Bottle Gourd Fudge / Lauki Ki Burfi

BottleGourd Fudge or famously known as Lauki / Doodhi burfi is made during fasts. Its a tasty dessert and not very difficult to make. I recently made it and more to use some leftover burfi. Here I am sharing the recipe with pictures..



Bottle Gourd / Lauki - 2 medium sized, peeled and grated.
Sugar - 200 gm
Green cardamom seeds powdered- 8
Khoya / Mawa / (Condensed milk - 1 tin) - 1 cup ( No sugar in case of condensed milk )
Pure Ghee/ Deshi Ghee - 1/2 cup
Dry fruits / Dried rose petals - For Garnishing ( optional)


In a wok, pour deshi ghee and once hot add grated bottlegourd and fry till its juice dries up. Approximately it takes 20- 30 minutes.

after 10 min.

Juice has dried up after 15 more minutes.

On another side make sugar syrup. Take suggested amount of sugar and half the amount of water ( if its one cup sugar, take 1/2 cup water) and let it boil for 10 minutes till it makes one string consistency)

When juices of bottle gourd dries up and the mixture leaves oil, add khoya/ mawa or condensed milk and mix it.

After 5 minutes add sugar syrup, cardamom powder and mix it properly for 3 minutes. Now switch off the flame.

Keep a greased thali ready.

Spread the mixture in the greased thali evenly.

Garnish it with dried rose petal or dry fruits and slightly press it, so that it sticks to the mixture.

Let it cool first and then keep it in refrigerator for 1 hr.

Take the thali and cut the mixture in diamond/ square/ rectangular shape. Place the fudge on a serving plate and enjoy the awesome taste of bottlegourd fudge or Lauki ki burfi.

Hope you liked it...
