Moong dal halwa, Diwali sweets recipes

Moong dal halwa recipe is a rich halwa with lots of ghee, flavoured with cardamom. It is perfect sweet for festivals like Diwali.

I have both made halwa with moong dal (a popular South Indian version) and chana dal halwa in this same way. I wanted to try moong dal halwa only first when I posted that. But somehow tried that. This year, to add on one more halwa to the collection, thought of trying moong dal halwa same way as I prepared that.

I would recommend a non stick pan, especially if you are beginner in cooking. Because last time, when I made, I do not remember sticking this much as I used non-stick. Otherwise, if you are careful and quick while adding and stirring, it will not be a problem. Just that it gets stuck easily to the pan if left as such for few seconds.

We both loved it, Aj tasted, he is not a big fan of , so he just told its tasty. We happily ate the halwa keeping it for couple of days in fridge. The flavour of dal and ghee is amazing and the house is filled with a festive smell as we make it.

Notes

  • While grinding moong, make sure to drain water completely.
  • Do not grind continuously, just give a run, wipe the sides to ensure even powdering. If water is retained, it will be a coarse paste.
  • Repeat few times to coarsely grind moong dal.
  • Reducing ghee will give dry texture instead of halwa consistency.
  • Adding water equally with milk is important to cook the dal.
  • If dal is not cooked properly, the halwa texture will not be soft. It will be chewy.
