Chana Dal Halwa Recipe – Easy Chana Dal Ka Halwa with step wise pictures.
Delicious chana dal halwa made in less than 30 to 35 mins. The taste is heavenly and it is super healthy for you.
I love making this halwa, it is one of the basic halwa recipe which anyone can make. It is very straight forward.
This halwa gets its taste from the roasting part, so keep cooking the halwa in ghee till it gets nice and golden. Once it is golden brown add milk and water and continue cooking. The more ghee you add to the halwa the more taste it gets.
This chana dal halwa is great for any parties, since it is diwali season i am sure you will love it.
