Method:
Wash and peel the gourd. If it is too long, then cut into two halves. Remove the pith with a knife with a thin and long blade. Prick the outside uniformly with a fork. Apply a teaspoon of salt all over and keep aside for 15 minutes.

Crumble khoya and keep stirring till it turn to a pinkish hue. Mix the fried nuts in it and keep aside.

Grind cloves, cardamoms and mace to a paste.
Lightly roast the poppy seeds on a griddle and grind to a paste using some of the curd.

Pat the gourd dry and fry it in the ghee previously used. Evenly brown all over. Drain ghee and remove.
Now in the khoya, add ¼ teaspoon of salt and 2 tablespoon of curd. Blend well. Stuff the mixture inside the gourd.

In the curd, mix the onion paste, poppy seed paste, garam masala paste and the saffron dissolved in kewra water. Also add the chilli powder and salt and blend well.
Grease a lagan, spread the curd mixture and the remainder of the ghee on it. Then cover with lid and place live charcoal fire on it. Also apply low heat from below. Cook for 30 minutes or till the gourd is done.
