Lauki Aur Gajar Ki Kheer (bottle Gourd And Carrot Pudding)
My another unique recipe which involves Lauki (Bottle gourd). I know many of you are force fed this vegetables by your mother in summer due to its cooling properties. I really thank Baba Ramdev for popularizing Lauki Juice as a natural panacea to reduce weight. Lauki is actually a very low calorie vegetable but is high in water content so it controls your appetite without adding calorie in your body. My recipe, however is not a low calorie recipe but it is a good way to include more fibre in your diet. Indian Kheer is basically made of cooking rice with milk and sugar and thus it is high in carbohydrate. I have replace rice with grated bottle gourd and Carrots to reduce the calorie content. You can add sugar free instead of sugar for a healthier option.
