Ghia Two Ways - Halwa & Kheer


Two very interesting ways to eat Ghis as a sweet / dessert . Both recipes work individually or together .
Ghia Ka Halwa

2 Measuring Cups Peeled & Grated Ghia / Lauki - I don't remove seeds.
1 Teaspoon Green Cardamon Seeds.
4 Tablespoons Sugar.
2 Tablespoons Chopped Assorted Nuts.
4 Tablespoons Grated Coconut.
1 Tablespoon Raisins/ Kishmish
1/3d Cup Milk.
3-4 Tablespoons Ghee.

Peel and grate ghia from the big hole , meanwhile heat ghee , splutter cardamon seeds and the nuts till nuts begin to change color . Now add the ghia and cook over high heat for 4-5 minutes then add coconut.At this stage ghia would have softened just enough - retain the bite.
Add sugar and milk . The milk is just to dissolve sugar , dry the milk out and there ayou are with a delicious Ghia Ka Halwa , best eaten warm

Ghia ki Kheer.

1.5 Liters Whole Cream Milk.
8-10 Green Cardamons Powdered With Peels.
100 Grams Khoya ( optional ).
2-3 Tablespoons Blanched Almonds.
Sugar to taste .
Gently reduce milk to half , as it thickens break in the khoya.Now mix in the Ghia Ka Halwa , cook 2-3 minutes for the sweetness of the halwa to blend in .Taste and add sugar accordingly.Sprinkle almonds .Eat Chilled.
Both these recipes work beautifully individually or together .
