Bottle Gourd Kheer - Detox Diet

BM #64 Week 2 Day 3 - 

Today I shall go over a simple dessert/dinner recipe which qualifies for the Bottle Gourd Detox. 

When my dietitian friend told me about this, my first question was, how can sugar be included in a detox diet? She say this detox diet is all about salt elimination and about 1 teaspoon of sugar is allowed per day in this diet plan.

So if it gets boring to eat the same bottle gourd sabji or bottle gourd raita, try this kheer for a change.

As a recap here is the diet plan again..

Rule 1 - Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water in a day
Rule 2 - Avoid regular salt, use Saindha Namak (Saindhava Lavanam or Himalayan pink rock salt)
Rule 3 - No other Nuts, Vegetables, Fruits or dairy products other than specified in the plan.
Rule 4 - Stay away from citrus fruits and berries. 

Day 1 and Day 2 
Breakfast - Bottle Gourd Juice 
Mid Morning Snack - Fleshy Fruits like Papaya, Water Melon or Cantaloupe
Green Tea with no additives (Optional but recommended)
Lunch - Bottle Gourd Pulp - Wheat Bran Roti with Bottle Gourd Raita
Evening Snack - Fleshy Fruits like Papaya, Water Melon or Cantaloupe
Dinner - Bottle Gourd Kheer or Bottle Gourd Sabji with Peanut
