Ganesh Chaturthi is my house’s most awaited festival, where you enjoy modak with different flavours. Here’s a most loved modak recipe for you. Made in just 10 minutes, you will love the flavour and taste. I bet this recipe can beat Haldirams of Nagpur for taste.

Lauki Barfi/Bottlegourd sweet


Food Is The Ingredient

That Binds Us Together

Lauki barfi is a complete Desi mithai which one could find in every sweet shop in Purvanchal.

Lauki is grown in abundance in this region, so this sweet was common among rich and poor. Though it’s vanishing now, as many don’t prefer eating them anymore. I can remember my childhood day’s when we use to go for marriages and this mithai was served, where as a kiddo I did not like this mithai after knowing that it was made with lauki 😀

“The older you are the wiser ” and now I realize it value. My son loves this mithai and my daughter is still shying away from this barfi.

In good old days this mithai was made with sugar syrup only, which made them really very hard. The reason for this was to make them last for months, as this was send with daughters as their goodies after marriage and in those days returning to mother’s place after marriage was not imagined coz no way of transportation was there during those times.

But as time has passed on this recipe has changed a bit by using mawa. Which does enhance the taste a lot, but the shelf life is restricted. I am so happy to be writing about this yummy mithai and saving the recipe for next generation to come.

So let’s get the recipe
