Ingredients to make Quick Moong Dal Halwa

  • 1/2 cup yellow moong dal
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup mawa (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp saffron dissolved in 1 tbsp water

How to make Quick Moong Dal Halwa

  1. Soak the moong dal in enough warm water for 2 to 3 hours and drain well.
  2. Blend the moong dal in a mixer to a coarse paste without using any water.
  3. Place the moong dal paste in to the muslin cloth and press to remove excess water. Remove the moong dal paste from the muslin cloth in to a plate and separate it using a spoon. Keep aside.
  4. Heat the ghee in a broad non stick pan, add the moong dal paste and cook on a medium flame for 10 to 12 minutes, while stirring constantly.
  5. Add 1/2 cup of water and milk and mix well. Cover and cook on a slow flame for 1-2 minutes while stirring occasionally.
  6. Add the sugar and mix well and cover and cook on a slow flame for another 5 to 7 minutes, stirring continuously.
  7. Add the saffron water mixture, cardamom powder and almond slivers and mix well
  8. Serve hot and garnish with pista and almonds.

My Tip:

Do not add water while grinding. When dal becomes soft with milk then add the sugar.
