Moongdal Halwa

One of my most favourite Rajasthani halwa..As a kid i rememb having them at wedding parties in winters...tried making it wen got the recipe from Richa's blog..came out try

Moongdal (split) - 1/2cup
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Illachi pwdr - 1/4 tsp
Saffron - a pinch
Almonds - 5 to 6 (crushed/silvered)
Water - 2 cups

Method : -
  1. Wash and soak moongdal for 3 to 4 hrs.
  2. Drain and grind dal with less water in a blender to a fine paste.
  3. Take a heavy bottomed kadai,mix this paste and ghee,turn on fire.
  4. Cook on medium flame,stirring continuously for 15-20 min(as dal tend to stick at bottton of kadai).
  5. Take a pan and boil water ,sugar,illachi pwdr n saffron for 5 mins.
  6. When you get sweet aroma of dal ,add the above sugar syrup to it..lillte by little-stirring continously.
