Bottle gourd and rice pudding

 I love bottle gourd for its huge benifits as i have mentioned in my last post  bottle gourd halwa.So i try to add bottle gourd in some or the other form..Today i used in my rice pudding and it was tasting better.I have also added some dates to make it more nutritious.This is really good for kids and for adults too.

Bottle gourd-1small(grated)
Basmathi rice-2tbsp
Full cream milk-1ltr
Sugar-11/2 cup
dates-1/2 cup(chopped finely)
cinnamon powder-1/2tsp
cashew nut,raisins and dates for garnishing-1/4 cup

  • Soak rice in water for 30 mins.
  • Pressure cook  grated bottle gourd  and dates for 15 mins without any water (as it contains lot of water ).
  • grind  the rice to smooth paste.
  • heat a heavy bottom sauce pan and boil the milk along with rice paste and when it comes to boil add cooked bottle gourd and dates and continue boiling until the mixture thickens.
  • If it is too thick then add  a cup of water and then boil.
  • Once it is done add cinnamon powder and then refrigerate for 2hours.
  • Before serving garnish with cahsew nut,raisins and dates.
