  • Add the milk and mix well. Now let it cook on a low to medium flame until the milk reduces to half, stirring in between and scraping the dried milk from sides too. This process will take approx 17-18 minutes.

  • Add rose water now and stir to mix it well.
  • Serve it hot or chilled as per your choice and relish this delicious dessert up to the core.


  • I took a small lauki which was approx 350 grams. So got around 250 grams after peeling and grating, so do remember that the quantity reduces after peeling and grating.
  • You can adjust the amount of sugar in the kheer as per your taste.
  • Kheer always thickens after getting cold, so always bear the desired consistency in your mind before switching off the heat.
  • Always grate the lauki just before cooking, otherwise it will leave water, and you would need to squeeze it resulting in losing all the nutrition.
