Moong Dal Halwa


1 cup Dhuli Moong Dal, soaked overnight
1 cup Ghee
1 cup Khoya
1 cup Sugar
2 cups water
1 tsp Elaichii powder
1/2 cup dry fruits - Almonds, Cashews


1. Grind moong dal to a fine paste.

2. Take ghee in a non-stick pan and fry moong dal on slow to medium heat till its color changes.

3. In the meanwhile, boil sugar and water till sugar dissolves. Do this towards the end as you need hot sugar water.

4. Once the color of dal changes, add khoya and hot sugar water. Remove from heat. Cover and leave aside for the water to get absorbed.

5. Add elaichii powder and dry fruits.

6. When serving decorate with a tsp of dry fruits.


• If you are not using a non-stick pan, add 1 tsp of besan to the ghee before adding moong dal. It doesn't stick to the pan. I have not tried it out but my mom told me this trick.
