Chana Dal Halwa

Ingredients to make Chana Dal Halwa

  • 1.5 cups - chana dal
  • 1.5 cups - Milk
  • 1 tsp - cardamom powder
  • 1 cup - sugar
  • 1/2 cup - ghee
  • 1/2 cup - Dry Fruits ( cashews, raisins etc)
  • 1/2 cup - Desiccated coconut
  • Silver leaf for garnish

How to make Chana Dal Halwa

  1. Wash and soak chana dal for at least 3 hours. Drain water and keep aside.
  2. In a pan, boil 1 cup of milk and add soaked chana dal in it and cook till it get soft (it may take 15 mins or so). Turn off the gas and allow it to cool. Later, coarsely grind it in a blender. You can even mash it with a spatula.
  3. Heat ghee in a non stick wok. Add coarsely grounded chana dal and fry by stirring continuously till the dal gets golden in color.
  4. Now add condensed milk or sugar and stir well by adding remaining milk slowly. Keep stirring to avoid forming lumps.
  5. Add chopped cashew nuts and raisins and dessicated coconut. Keep the pistachios for garnishing.
  6. Stir the halwa till it thickens and starts leaving ghee from sides. Turn off the flame and serve portions of it in the serving bowls. Garnish it with the chopped pistachios and dessicated coconut. You may also put silver leaf on top (optional)

My Tip:

You can even transfer the halwa in a greased tray, spread evenly, garnish and allow it to set. Cut into desired shape to make barfi.
