I have made doodhi halwa on gas stove earlier.This time around,I wanted to make it in microwave. I googled for it & got this Tarla Dalal recipe.My recipe is little different.
Ingredients : 2 cups peeled & grated dudhi, 1+ 1/2 cups malai , 1/3 cup sugar, few kesar strands, 1/2 tsp elaichi powder,2 tbsp ghee,assorted nuts for garnishing.
Method : I used grated dudhi as it is that is I let the lauki be as it is.I did not squeeze out water as I felt all nutrients of lauki would be lost.
I took a shallow microwaveable vessel & added ghee.Add the grated lauki & mix.Microwave on high for 5 minutes.Add malai mixed with kesar strands Again microwave for 2.5 minutes.Mix nicely.Add sugar.Mix.Microwave for 2.5 minutes.Again mix & microwave on high for 2.5 minutes.Add elaichi powder.Mix & microwave on high for two minutes.
Put off microwave.Let it cool in microwave for 10 minutes.Take out the vessel & let it cool outside for 20-25 minutes.Serve in bowls garnished with almonds or any nuts of choice.
My dad & all my extended family who ate the halwa relished it.I ate it later & agreed with them that it had indeed turned out delicious !
Tips : The halwa was sweet & yet, just so.If you would like it to be more sweet, please add more sugar as per taste.
