The recipe chosen for december month in Indian Cooking Challenge by Srivalli . Thanks to to Simran's Mom for the recipe and Lataji for the notes on recipe .
Ingredients needed :
- Split (Yellow) Moong dhal - 1 cup
- Ghee - 1/2 cup
- Sugar - 3/4 cups to 1 cup (as per required sweetness)
- Milk - 1/2 cup
- Cashews/ raisins roasted in ghee for garnish.
Cook until ghee surfaces on the sides and the halwa attains a very nice shine.
Initially, it may appear that all the ghee is being used up. But as the dhal cooks the ghee separates. So the ghee measure is sufficient. Depending on how you got the moong dal paste, you may require slightly more ghee to get the texture
Though original recipe didn't call for roasting the dhal before soaking, Lataji felt roasting it a bit gives more fragrance.
