Lauki ki Kheer is Easy to Digest

Carrying on with my Vrat recipes, today I am sharing a Lauki ki Kheer Recipe. Fasting and Festival time calls for sweets isn’t it. When you are fasting it is recommended that you have more fruits and deserts.¬† On this occasion, the food should be light and easy to digest. But food should be full of starch and simple proteins.

Bottle gourd or Lauki or Doodi is cooling, healthy and delicious. It is quite simple like regular kheer and it takes lesser time to cook. And the texture and method are very similar to cooking Kheer or Gajjar Halwa but this is easier.

It is very easy to digest Lauki ki Kheer if made with just milk and sugar. But if you want to make it for a special occasion then you can add condensed milk guests and cream to make a rich version of Lauki ki Kheer Recipe. If your kids do not like veggies then just tell them that the shredded gourd is glass noodles! Then watch them finish their dessert.

Other benefits of Lauki

  • It actually promotes Weight Loss
  • Helps Digestion and prevents constipation
  • Has a cooling Effect
  • Cures Urinary Problems
  • Cures Sleeping Disorders
  • Keeps you hydrated
  • Keeps The Heart Healthy
  • Reduces Inflammation Of Liver

My writing was limited to school essays and projects for my kids and out of the blue, my writing career began with writing articles for the magazine section of a reputed national newspaper. I rediscovered my best subject at school and began writing with gusto. I had a weekend column in the newspaper which was well appreciated. I started off writing about Interiors and Gardens and later diverse topics like Fashion, trends, food and events in the city. Juggling my time between various jobs down the years and my writing, I have written content for fliers, brochures for colleges, speeches, social media content and also website content. I love writing and I am open to writing on a plethora of topics. My blog has some interesting insights into my life and travels but now it is mainly a food blog as I am growing organic vegetables and cooking my own produce is very therapeutic. Read my blogs to know me better. I write from my heart and what I write is what I feel... I feel a feel, A funny feel A funny feel, feel I! If you feel the feel I feel You'll feel the same as I!!
