Doodhi Halwa/Milk Gourd Halwa/Sorrakkai Halwa

                                                                            Doodhi Halwa is a north Indian sweet very similar to Carrot,Beet root or Pumpkin Halwa.People usually make it in winter in the north.There are few ways of making this  halwa you can either reduce milk and cook the doodhi in it and make the halwa which takes a little time otherwise you can use mawa(khoya)or condensed milk which reduces time and gives a good texture.I have used condensed milk and made the halwa.
Add a Extra Spoon of Ghee and enjoy the Halwa!!!!
