Ingredients to make Coconut Moong Dal Halwa Truffle

  • moong dal: 1 cup
  • dessicated coconut: 1/3 cup + 1/2 cup for rolling
  • Ghee/butter: 1/2 cup
  • Milk/Soya/Almond/coconut Milk: 1 cup
  • sugar: 1 cup
  • water: 1 cup
  • cardamom powder: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Unsalted Fried nuts: 1/4th cup chopped (optional)

How to make Coconut Moong Dal Halwa Truffle

  1. Soak Split Moong Dal for 3 hours. Drain the excess water and blend it to fine paste. In a non stick pan add ghee and the Dal paste and turn the heat on.
  2. Stir continuously until you get the beautiful aroma of moong dal. After stirring for 5 mins continuously you will find that the mixture is coming together.
  3. Now, you have to press and break the mixture after 5 minutes.
  4. Continue pressing and breaking the mixture for 8 more minutes, you will start to feel the beautiful aroma of the mixture.
  5. If you are not patient enough then follow this tip otherwise continue the above step for 15-30 minutes until you get fine granules or your mixture leaves out ghee.
  6. Tip: Blend the mixture for 15 seconds and you will have fine granules. Fry this mixture for 5 more minutes.
  7. While your dal is cooking on other burner heat up milk and water mixture to boil and stir in sugar and cook till sugar is dissolved.
  8. Add milk mixture, desiccated coconut and cardamom powder to the blended mixture and cook until the mixture comes together and its not sticking to the bottom anymore.
  9. You can stop at this point, garnish with dry fruits and serve, but if you want to make truffles/ladoos then make lime sized balls and roll it in dessicated coconut and keep it aside for cooling.

My Tip:

Use non stick pan. For making the process fast and stress-free, blend the mixture once you start to feel the aroma (Blending should be done anytime after 18 minutes) of the dal mixture. Make ladoos/truffle and serve in cupcake liner for easy serving in the parties.
