How To Make Lauki Burfi

Peel Lauki, cut into long pieces and remove the inner pulp with seeds. Wash the pieces and grate them. Put the Lauki pieces in a frying pan(kadhai) without any oil, put 2 tsp Ghee, cover and aloow to cook on a low flame. After some time stir with a spoon, cover the pan again. Cook Lauki till it turns soft.

Put sugar in soft Lauki and cook, water releases from Lauki after it is mixed with sugar. Stir Lauki at regular intervals to prevent it from sticking at the pan's base, in this way cook Lauki till all of the water dries up.

Add Ghee to this cooked Lauki then fry Lauki properly. Put Mawa and dry fruits to Lauki-sugar mixture then cook till it reaches the point where it solidifies. Stick Chashni between your fingers to see if it sticks to your fingers. Turn off the gas, crush Elaichi and add to the mixture.

Grease a palate with little Ghee and put this mixture in the plate uniformly. Stick chopped pistachios on the Burfi. Burfi will be hard in an hour. Cut Lauki ki Burfi in your desired shapes, serve and eat.

Fill the remaining Lauki Ki Burfi in an air tight container, keep it in the fridge and enjoy it for 7 days.
