Bottle gourd halwa

Bottle gourd, commonly known as sorekayi in kannada, belongs to the cucumber family and is rich in fiber and water content. It is usually consumed either in the form of majjige huli (buttermilk-coconut gravy) or as halwa. This halwa recipe uses very little ghee (clarified butter) and yields halwa that is mildly sweet. Feel free to increase the amounts of either or both of the ingredients depending on your taste buds.
