  1. In a pan, heat the ghee and add the grated bottle gourd. Cook for about 10-15 minutes, or until the gourd is soft and any excess water has evaporated.
  2. Add the sugar, milk and cardamom powder. Stir until the sugar dissolves and the mixture thickens, about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Once the mixture thickens and starts to leave the sides of the pan, turn off the heat.
  4. Grease a plate or tray with ghee and pour the mixture into it. Spread it evenly and flatten it with the back of a spoon.
  5. Garnish with slivered almonds and pistachios.
  6. Let the mixture cool for about 20-30 minutes and then cut it into desired shape and size.
  7. Once it is completely cooled and set, you can enjoy your delicious Lauki Ki Barfi.

Note: You can add some khoya or mawa for added richness. The barfi will have a softer texture if you add mawa or khoya.
