Lauki halwa
Bottlegourd, widely known as Lauki in Hindi and sorakkai in tamil. We can make plenty of dishes using bottlegourd. One of the hit recipes using bottlegourd is Bottlegourd biryani . Other than the usual curries with bottlegourd, wanted to try my hands on sweet. And it came out very well, and the taste was excellent. Try out this yummy dessert at your home and share your feedback in the comments section below.
