Ingredients for Bottle Gourd Pancakes with Rabdi Recipe

  • Bottle gourd (lauki/doodhi) grated 3 cups

  • Milk 6 1/4 cups

  • Pure ghee 2 tablespoons

  • Sugar 5 tablespoons

  • Khoya/mawa grated 4 tablespoons

  • Green cardamom powder a pinch

  • Pistachios sliced 20-25

  • Refined flour (maida) 1/2 cup

  • Cornflour/ corn starch 1/4 cup

  • Salt a pinch

  • Egg 1/2 cup

  • Vanilla essence a few drops

  • Condensed milk 1/4 cup


Step 1

Heat ghee in a non-stick pan, add bottle gourd and sauté till all the water evaporates. Add one and a half cups of milk and cook till milk has reduced to half.

Step 2

Add sugar and cook till the sugar dissolves. Add khoya and cook till it mixes well with the gourd. Add cardamom powder and half the sliced pistachios and mix.

Step 3

Put refined flour, cornflour, salt, egg, three-fourth cup milk, vanilla essence and sufficient water in a bowl and mix to make a batter of pouring consistency. Let the batter rest for a while.

Step 4

To make rabdi, heat four cups of milk in a large wide mouthed non-stick pan, stirring continuously, till milk reduces to one third its original quantity. Take it off the heat and let it cool a little. Add condensed milk and mix well.

Step 5

Heat another non-stick pan. Spread a ladle full of batter and tilt the pan so that the batter spreads evenly all round. Spread a little bottle gourd halwa on the top. When the underside is done fold the pancake into half and then into quarter to resemble a triangle. Similarly make rest of the pancakes.

Step 6

Place them on individual serving plates, drizzle a little rabdi on top of each and serve garnished with the remaining pistachios.
