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
