Sweets become sweeter especially when they are homemade.

Loki Kalakand – Bottle gourd has numerous health benefits. The first and foremost is, it is a very cooling vegetable because of its high water content. And the lightly sweet flavour softens up the mood. Bottle gourd sweet proves just as delicious.
I used Kapiva A2 desi ghee to make lauki kalakand and no change in taste at all. Also, the aroma was great.
