Moong Dal Ka Halwa Recipe - Moong Dal Halwa Recipe


Moong dal halwa is one of my favourite. It is delicious and pretty easy to make. The only hard task is keep on stiring, you can never step away from the pan when you are toasting moong dal, else it may gets stuck or burn or form lumps. 





Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.



Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 1 hour
Serves: 5 to 6

Ingredients:

Yellow Split Moong Dal - 1 cup
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Milk - 2 cups
Cardamom Powder - 1 tsp
Saffron a pinch

Method:

Wash and soak moong dal for 4 hours. Drain it and take it in a blender. puree till smooth.

Take milk, sugar in a sauce pan and bring it to a boil.Turn off the heat and add in saffron and cardamom.

Now heat ghee in a nonstick pan, add the moong dal puree in and mix well.

Cook this and keep stiring and pressing till it gets cooked.

Keep cooking till the mixture gets dry and toasty. It will take around 30 mins.

Now add in milk mixture and mix well. Cook this till it thickens and gets halwa like texture.

Done.
