Moong dal halwa


Moong dal-2 cups

Sugar-1 1/2 cup

Milk-1/2 cup

Cashews -10


Ghee-1 cup

Saffron – pinch

Yellow color- pinch(optional)

Cardamom powder-1/3 tsp


Soak moong dal for atleast two hours in warm water.

Then drain it and grind them into a coarse paste like this.

Then in a pan heat ghee and fry the cashews and raisins and keep it aside..

Then in the same pan add the grounded moong dal paste and sauté it well for 5 minutes..

Then you can add water and milk but I added this saffron to the half cup of milk and added to the dal. And allow it to boil for 5 mins.

And then add sugar to it and cover it with lid and cook for 5 more mins.

Drizzle with ghee and add cardamom powder and the fried cashew and raisins to it..

Serve hot.! 🙂🤤

• I added two cups of dal for a larger quantity.

You can reduce it to one cup and if that’s the case sugar should be 3/4th cup.
