*Peel the lauki skin from the slices. Now carefully slice off the white portion. Remove all the seeds. Now grate lauki and keep it in a bowl.

* Using your hands, squeeze out the excess water in the grated lauki. Grind the white portion that you had removed earlier.

* In a pan, heat ghee. Once the ghee melts, add the grated lauki. Add the white portion. Mix and cook on a medium flame for about five to six minutes. Cover it with a lid and cook for another seven to eight minutes.

* After this, remove the lid and saute for a while.

* Once the lauki is cooked completely, add desiccated coconut and mix.

* Add khoya, cardamom powder, and sugar, and mix again on low flame. Cook for five minutes.

* Turn off the flame and add green food colour and chopped dry fruits. Mix well.

* Line a baking tin with baking paper. Add the barfi mixture and spread it out evenly.

* On top of this, add silver leaf or varak. Refrigerate for one hour.

* Take it out after an hour and slice it into small squares. Your lauki barfi is ready.
