Ingredients to make Moong Dal Burfi

  • 1 cup split and husked green gram (dhuli moong ki dal) - soaked in water for 5-6 hours
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup ghee
  • 75 gm khoya
  • 1/4 tsp powdered green cardamom
  • 2 Tbsp slivered and roasted almonds

How to make Moong Dal Burfi

  1. 1. Once the daal has soaked well, drain it and then grind the daal till it's slightly more coarse than the texture of sand. Keep aside.
  2. 2. In a wok, add ghee and dal and roast until the edges brown and the fat seperates. Take it off the heat.
  3. 3. Remove this mix and let it cool completely. Meanwhile, in the same wok heat the khoya until it becomes smooth and almost caramel coloured.
  4. 4. Add this to the daal and also add the cardamom powder and khoya. Mix the dal, elaichi and khoya and keep aside to cool.
  5. 5. in another pan place the sugar and water over low heat stirring till the sugar dissolves and only then bring it to the boil. Once it boils, thicken the syrup and test for consistency by dropping it on a cold surface or cold water and waiting for it to set to firm.
  6. 6. Take the pan off the heat and mix immediately into the cooled daal mix.
  7. 7. Transfer on to the greased plate, pat to level, garnish with almonds and leave to cool.
  8. Once cool and set, cut into desired sized pieces, using a sharp knife.
My Tip: Add a spoonful of desiccated coconut for extra texture
