Louki/Sorakaya Halwa- Bottle gourd Dessert

Bottle gourd is called Sorakaya in Telugu and Louki/dudhi in Hindi. I love its fry with roti, it is my all time favorite combination. Bottle gourd is good for health. Though I know of this halwa before but I never prepared at home. This is my first attempt after my marriage. I kept this to my hubby, at first he asked me "ee padartham emiti???" meaning "What is is called?(in a bit criticizing way!)" then he had I spoon upon my request, he was like WOWW!!!! and we both finished it in no time. Hope you like it too!!!!

Shredded bottle gourd- 1cup
Cardamom powder-1/4tbsp
