Ingredients to make Moong Dal Halwa

  • Skinless Moong Dal 1 cup (215 gms, washed and soaked for 3-4 hours)
  • Ghee ¾ cup
  • Mawa/Khoya ½ cup (80 gms)
  • Sugar ¾ cup
  • Water ¾ cup
  • Saffron strands 5-6 (powdered)
  • Mace (javitri) a small piece (powdered)
  • Nutmeg (jaiphal) a small piece (powdered)

How to make Moong Dal Halwa

  1. Remove water from the dal and grind the dal into a coarse paste.
  2. Heat ghee in a pan.
  3. Add the dal paste to it and let it cook for 45 minutes or until the ghee starts to separate from the dal and fragrance starts coming.
  4. The dal paste will be converted into a coarse mixture. This mixture can be prepared in advance and stored in freezer. So whenever you want to eat halwa, it can be prepared within no time.
  5. Heat mawa in another pan. Add it to the dal mixture and mix well.
  6. In another pan heat sugar and water. Let a boil come in the syrup.
  7. Add the powdered saffron, mace, nutmeg, and green cardamom to the syrup. Let it boil once.
  8. Add the dal and mawa mixture to the syrup.
  9. Cook for about 5-7 minutes.
  10. Garnish with almond slivers and serve hot.
  11. Serve hot
My Tip: I prefer to use a non-stick pan for cooking the dal paste. While grinding the dal, keep it a bit coarse only. It gives the halwa a wonderful texture.
