Chana Dhal Halwa

Recipe From Flavors of my kitchen

March SNC month challenge Completed. Very happy. Thank you for this wonderful challenge (to flavors of my kitchen blogger). Everyone just loved it in my family and many of my aunts asked me the recipe.

Ingredients:

1 Cup Chana Dal(Chickpea/Bengal gram lentil )
3/4 Cup Ghee
1/2 Cup Sugar
2.5 Cup Whole Milk
2 Cardamom powder
6-7 Almonds (chopped)

Method:


Chana Dhal Halwa


Chana Dhal Halwa

  • Wash and Soak dal in 2 Cup water for 4 hours.
  • Boil the soaked dal in 1 Cup of water until its just done(2 whistle on high heat than 5 minutes simmering on low heat)
  •  Remove extra water if any.let it cool down.
  • Mash the boiled dal with back of spoon to make grainy paste.
  •  Heat ghee in heavy bottom pan.Add mashed dal and fry on medium heat 15 minutes.by this time raw smell will vanish and nutty aroma will spread around.Also you will able to see ghee at edges separating with dal.
  • Now add 1/2 Cup milk and fry on high heat till it get dry.Again add 1/2 cup milk and fry.
  • Repeat this until all milk is used (it took me 40 minutes).
  • Finally mix in cardamom powder,sugar with chopped almonds and fry on high heat (15 minutes) .
  • Serve hot or simply spread on plate and sprinkle some extra chopped nuts.Let it cool down completely.
  • Note: My halwa was not set to make pieces. So I served it in a bowl.
