Moong Dal Kheer

Ingredients to make Moong Dal Kheer

  • 1/4 cup moong dal
  • 2-3 tablespoons jaggery, grated (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon Chopra/ Dry coconut, grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon Khus Khus/poppy seeds
  • 1/8 teaspoon Green Elaichi/cardamom Powder
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • water as needed
  • A few cashew nuts and pistachios

How to make Moong Dal Kheer

  1. Wash and rinse the moong dal.
  2. In a thick bottomed and deep vessel add the moong dal and water. Bring it to boil in an open pan till it's cooked.
  3. In the meanwhile, heat the chopra and khus khus/poppy seeds in a kadhai/wok till it's toasted. Heat them separately.
  4. Once the moong dal is cooked, then add the jaggery and let it melt totally. Add the khus khus/poppy seeds, chopra and the elaichi/cardamom powder.
  5. Just before serving pour in the milk.

My Tip:

1. The milk can be substituted with coconut milk in case you want a vegan drink. Also, we use dry coconut you can use fresh grated coconut. 2. The reason you should use a deep vessel is so that the moong dal doesn't boil over.
