Moong Dal Halwa - मूंग दाल हलवा (Moong Bean Fudge)
Moong Dal (Yellow Moong Bean) - 1/2 cups
Mawa/Khoa (Milk Reductions) - 1/2 cup
Ghee (Clarified Butter) - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/3 cup
Mixed nuts - I picked Cashew and raisins (broken), roasted in little ghee.
Soak moong dal in water for about 2-3 hours and then grind to coarse paste with no water.
Heat ghee in a non-stick pan and fry ground moong till nice aroma comes from it and it stops sticking to the bottom.
Now, add mawa and sugar to it and mix well, stirring frequently till, it all comes to a halwa/fudge consistency.
Once the dal is all cooked, nice aroma will come and the ghee will start separating, which would mean it is done.
At this point, mix fried cashew and raisins to it or use it as garnishing in individual bowls, as you prefer.
Alternatively, you can grease a plate, pour the cooked halwa right after you take it off from the heat and then cut in desired shapes. Just easy to serve and good portion size :)
Serve it as dessert (warm) to end a perfect dinner !!!
