Have you ever licked your spoon or even the bowl after a dessert??!!!! I did for this one!! :P

Making sweets with vegetables is a classic touch to our Indian cooking. We have the pumpkin halwa, Carrot Halwa, Carrot kheer etc.. The list goes on. 

One of such classic delicious dessert is the snake gourd payasam. This payasam is so creamy and rich with ingredients that it doesn't just get boring. Snake gourd and bottle gourd being subtle watery vegetables can be used to make this delicious dessert and I am sure you and your family would love it just as much as we did :)

Soak cashew nuts and rice in water for one hour. 

Grind into smooth paste along with coconut and poppy seeds by adding adequate water. Keep this aside. 

Dice snake gourd into small pieces. Take two tblsp of ghee in a pan and fry the snake gourd until soft and tender. Sprinkle some water, close and allow it to cook. 

Now add the ground paste and cook until raw smell goes. 

Finally add the milk and sugar and boil until the milk thickens and becomes creamy. 

Serve hot or cold :)

Enjoy eating a delicious Indian dessert :)
