Moong Dal Halwa

I love Halwa(s)…. I came to know this halwa through ICC (Indian Cooking Challenge). This is the dish selected for December Challenge. I tried it and came out really well. Thanks to Srivalli. Here’s the Recipe.

Moong Dal Halwa

Moong Dal Halwa


Moong Dal – 1 cup (soak in water overnight)

Sugar – 1 cup

Milk – ½ cup

Ghee – ½ cup

Cashews and raisins – for taste.

Preparation of Halwa:

  1. Grind the soaked moong dal into a fine paste and keep it aside.
  2. Heat ¼ cup ghee in a pan in medium flame, add cashews and raisins and fry lightly.
  3. Add the moong dhal paste and mix well so that there will be no lumps.
  4. Lower the flame, add another ¼ cup of ghee and mix well. Mix it till the dhal gets cooked and the ghee oozes out.
  5. Add the sugar and milk and mix well till it become thick. Then pour it in a plate and allow it to cool.
  6. After few mins you can cut it into pieces.

Additional Info:

Do not cook the dal in high flame. Dal will cook soon.

I thought of adding some colour like kesari colour, lemon yellow. But naturally it has a beautiful yellow colour.
