The wishes are mostly fulfilled with the availability of so many sweets to choose from. The mithai shops are ever bustling with people queuing up and there are special counters set up during festive days to cater the rush. With so many variations and combinations, its easy to over indulge at times. Here I give a slight twist to the regular khoya barfi and made this barfi with lauki or bottle gourd. Lauki Ki Barfi is fairly easy to prepare and just delectable in taste. Line it up with shining edible silver foil and amaze your family and guests with this irresistible dessert. Lauki Ki Barfi would go well on festive days and its even good for fasting people. So indulge yourself with this simple recipe.
