Moong Dal Halwa Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 12:32:00
Moong dal Halwa, a splendid and an exotic dessert, is one of my favorite sweets that I have ever eaten and hope all of you would love it. It is a very rich and creamy sweet delicacy but a tedious one to prepare. It takes a long time for the dal to get cooked, so patience is the essence of this recipe. The aroma of the sweet is so tempting and appealing, and above all, the richness of the ghee is irresistible. Enjoy the recipe and ignore the calorie count.

KitchenMasti Points.

  1. The halwa has to be cooked under a low flame or else the halwa might be scorched at the bottom.
  2. You may reduce the milk and substitute water for it but milk tastes the best.
  3. You may increase the quantity of the saffron for a unique taste.
  4. You may cook the halwa without adding Kova. It is optional. 
  5. A non stick pan is the ideal pan for this recipe.
