    Milk1/2 CupMilk Powder200 Gram
    Green Cardamom Powder1 TeaspoonAlmonds, Finely Sliced5 - 7
    Cashew Nut, Finely Sliced5 - 7Dry Coconut, Finely Grated1/2 Cup
    Ghee Or Oil3 Tablespoon + To GreasingGreen Food Colour (Optional)1 Teaspoon

    Take a Lauki (bottle gourd) and peel it to clean. Cut and discard both the ends of lauki. Make sure the lauki should not be bitter, so taste the lauki from both ends, otherwise the bitter lauki will ruin the taste of the dessert.

    Cut the lauki into 4 pieces lengthwise. Discard the inner soft part of the lauki as it contains seeds.

    The unseeded outer clean portion will be used to make barfi. Grate the lauki.

    Squeeze the grated Lauki using both of your  hand to remove water from the Lauki. You will get dry grated Lauki. If you do not remove water from the Lauki, it will take longer time to cook.

    Heat 2 tablespoons ghee in a non-stick pan over medium heat. When the ghee gets hot enough. Add grated Lauki to it and mix well. Cover the pan using a lid and cook it for 2-3 minutes.

    Open the lid and stir well. Add milk and mix well. Cover the lid again and cook again until the milk has dried, while stirring occasionally to avoid sticking. Open the lid and mix well. Add sugar and mix well. The sugar will soon melt.

    Add finely chopped almonds, cashews and green cardamom powder to it and mix well. Cook it for a minute and add finely grated coconut and mix well. Add milk powder and mix well. Add green food color (which is optional) and mix well.

    Cook it for about 2 minutes while stirring continuously. Add 1 tablespoon of ghee and cook on medium heat till the dough is dry enough. Barfi dough will start leave the pan by adding ghee at this stage.

    Turn off the gas when the dough dries. Take a tray in which we must move the barfi to set. Grease the tray well with ghee and transfer the dough to this tray, spread and set it with a spatula. Spread some dry fruits over it and press them gently with a spatula.

    Keep the tray in a cool place for 1 hour. You can also keep the tray in the fridge. After an hour the barfi will freeze and become tight. Take the tray out of the fridge and cut the barfi into pieces.

    Enjoy delicious barfi with your family.
