  • Milk 1-1/2 liters
  • Bottle gourd (grated) 3/4 cup
  • Tapioca Pearls 3 tbsp
  • Rice ½ cup
  • Powdered almonds 3 tbsp
  • Cardamom powder ¼ tbsp
  • Saffron few strands
  • Vanilla essence 1 tbsp
  • Condensed milk 200 gm
  • Slivered almonds ½ tbsp
  • Clarified butter 2 tbsp
  • Edible Silver Leaf 1

Wash and soak sago for 1 hour. Wash rice and pat to dry. Spread rice on a clean muslin cloth for 30-40 minutes under fan and allow it to dry. Once the rice is dry, grind to coarse powder. In a pan, add ghee and roast the slivered almonds. Once they turn light golden using a slotted spoon remove the almonds onto kitchen paper and set aside.
In the same ghee add grated bottle gourd and on medium flame saute for 2-3 minutes until the bottle gourd begins to leave its liquids. At this stage add half of milk and 1-1/2 cups of water to bottle gourd and cook until bottle gourd is soft. In another pan, add remaining milk, add the coarsely ground rice along with soaked sago and cook till done. Take care to keep stirring this mixture so it does not stick at the bottom of the pan. Now add condensed milk, cardamom powder, almond powder, vanilla essence and the boiled milk and bottle gourd mixture. Stir gently to combine all the ingredients well. Cook on low flame and stir until everything combines together. Cook till you get kheer-like consistency. If the mixture is getting too thick, then you can add 1/2 cup milk or water to give it a better consistency. Garnish the Gil-E-Firdaus with golden fried slivered almonds and edible silver leaf. Serve chilled.
