Sorakaya Halwa

Its time for a sweet treat,this is my 250th post in my blog,so want to share this sweet dish to my fellow bloggers and my friends who encourage me in keeping this blog active.

I want to share my experience about the fall season for the year 2010.Foliage is a wonderful experience right!!!natures beauty is more enhanced with the change in colors of the trees,lovely colors and shades of red,yellow,orange,green and drive in such a place is a memorable experience,last week we went to New Hampshire for Foliage,of-course after going there we realized that our visit was early than it should be,but finally we drove for few hours and found pockets of fall colors,clicked some pics and came back.

I feel in love with that place and missing it,didn't feel like coming home,but no way :( I wish my hubby should get his next project in East Coast :D .Here are few pics of foliage.


Grated Bottle Gourd(Squeeze the water and then measure): 2 cups
Sugar:1 cup
Kova/Khoya:1/2 cup(I used store bought kova which is sweetened and crumbled it before adding)
Green Food Color:A Pinch(optional)
Ghee:1/2 cup
Elachi Powder: A pinch
Cashews,Raisins,Almonds:2-3 spns(fry in little ghee till golden color)


1.In a pan heat ghee,after it melts add the grated and squeezed bottle gourd and fry till it turns light golden color,now add the crumbled sweetened Kova,mix well and cook for 4-5 mins,stir once in a while and now add the sugar,mix and let it cook on medium flame for another 5-8 mins.
2.Add a pinch of green food color,mix and finally add the fried dry fruits to it and mix well.
Serve it Hot or chilled according to your taste.


I used store bought Kova which is already sweetened,if you are using normal khoya(nanak company) which is not sweetened then adjust sugar to your taste.
