This one is like the Bombay halwa , thickened

2 cups bottlegourd ( lauki)

3/4 -1 cup sugar

3/4 cup cornflour mixed in a little water

1/2 tsp cardamon powder

A pinch of nutmeg powder

Handful of cashewnuts

A pinch of edible camphor

1/4 cup ghee

A pinch of salt

METHOD

Grind the gourd to a very fine paste .

Heat half of the ghee in a thick bottomed kadai.

Add the ground paste with salt to the heated

ghee, and cook till you see it turning glossy .

Add sugar and cook till sugar dissolves.

Add the cornflour mix,and the rest of the

ingredients .

Take care and keep stirring as the minute you

add the cornflour , it will thicken .

Add the remaining ghee and keep cooking till

the mixture is thick and forms into one lump,

and leaves the sides of the pan.

Transfer to a greased plate.

Smear a little ghee on the top.
