Moong dal halwa is a traditional sweet dish. One of the favourites in auspicious occasions. Delight everyone with this traditional sweet halwa prepared with Gagangiri Ghee.
- 300g Moong dal
- 200g Ghee
- 200g Sugar
- Chironji Seeds
- Gagangiri Ghee
Take 300g of yellow moong dal in a bowl.
Pour water completely in the bowl and soak the moong dal overnight.
Grind the soaked moong dal to a coarse paste.
We are going to use Gagangiri Ghee for this traditional preparation. Open a jar of Ghee.
Heat a pan. Take 3 tablespoon of Ghee and pour over it.
Once the ghee melts completely, pour the grinded dal in the pan.
Let the dal cook in the ghee completely. Moong dal is sticky, you may have to completely stir it while it cooks. If it lumps, break it down into further pieces.
Once the dal is cooked completely in ghee and is in granular form, add 100g of sugar to it and stir further till the sugar is completely dissolved.
The ghee will be completely absorbed into the dal. At this point, add sliced dry fruits, almonds and pistachios.
Cook further. Here the ghee will start appearing again.
Add crushed chironji seeds.
Close the lid of the pan and let the halwa and dry fruits cook completely for 5-10 mins.
Once the halwa is brown, it will mean its cooked completely. Put off the stove.
Take the ready halwa in a bowl . Its ready to be served.
