Moong Dal Halwa
“Any festival is incomplete without sweets. Especially during the festival of Diwali, people make merry by indulging in a variegated spread of sweet delights, be it traditional or western,” Rohit Chadda, managing director and founder of Foodpanda.in, said in a statement.
Overall sweet consumption is, however, highest in Bangalore, followed by Mumbai, Delhi and Gurgaon.
Before leaving – would like to share with you the recipe for “moong dal halwa”.
Many people take hours for frying dal for the halwa but this is a very quick & easy recipe.
Take 1 cup dholi hui moong dal (yellow dal). Soak it in luke warm water for 3-4 hours. After 4 hours you’ll be able to break it.
Coarsely grind it in a blender with practically nil or very little water.
Take a muslin cloth, squeeze out the extra water out of the coarsely ground yellow moong dal paste. Separate it with a spoon in a plate.
Take a heavy bottom pan, put 1 cup ghee or clarified butter and add dal paste.
Cook this for 10 – 12 minutes on a very slow flame, till it becomes golden brown. It might get slightly burnt on sides but no problem.
Next add 1 cup milk & 1 cup water, mix well. (Note: I did not throw the squeezed out water rather added it at this stage)
Now add 1 cup sugar. Keep stirring ocassionally.
Cover it & let it cook on a very very slow flame.
Garnish it with dry fruits, 1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder & saffron.
Your moong dal halwa is ready but do remember your gas is very very slow.
