there are several ways the dudhi halwa recipe can be prepared and it basically varies with the location or region. however 2 main variation of this recipe is by preparing it either with milk or condensed milk / milkmaid. note that if you are using the thick condensed milk, no extra sugar is require to be added as condensed milk already contains. but in this recipe i have followed the traditional way of preparing it via fresh cream milk and khoya. in addition the advantage with milk is the amount sugar can be easily controlled as compared to the condensed milk. moreover i personally feel the grated bottle gourd slices gets cooked properly with milk yielding more creamy and rich lauki ka halwa. this is because, milk takes more time to get thick and eventually helping bottle gourd slices to cook properly.
