Moong Daal Halwa

Moong Daal Halwa Ingredients:


1 Cup Split Moong daal (yellow)
1 Cup Desi Ghee
1 Cup Sugar, use 1 1/2 cup sugar if you are using the granulated sugar found in America
Optional : Khoya/Mava

How to make


 Soak daal for 4-5 hours and grind it into a fine paste.
Heat ghee in a big skillet and roast daal in it on a very low flame for 2-3 hours till it turns light brown. The ghee starts to separate at this time.
Add 2 cups water and sugar and bring it to a boil and then continue roasting on a low flame it till it is dry and shiny.
Add mava if desired. I like the halva with the mava..
