moong dal halwa recipe


An authentic recipe that is loved throughout India during the winter season, as it helps to protect the body from the cold by keeping it warm. It is believed to be propitious and is prepared during festivals and the family or social gatherings. Though its preparation is time-consuming the outcome is worth every single minute you spent on it. You can also make a larger quantity of this and store it in the refrigerator for several weeks. Just add a small quantity of milk(preferably 4-5 tablespoons) to the halwa before reheating it.

1 cup Yellow Moong Dal

1 cup Ghee

3 cups Milk

200 g Khoya

1 and 1/2 cups Sugar

Wash properly and soak moong dal in enough water for 5-6 hours or overnight.
