Method of Preparing Moong Dal Halwa Recipe:

Step 1: Preparation

Rinse moong dal twice and soak for 30 minutes. Drain the water and blend the dal. Blend it until it becomes smooth inconsistency.

Step 2: Fry the Moong Dal

To a non-stick pan or kadhai, add Organic cow’s ghee and heat it. Add Rava or suji and fry it until it becomes light brown. Now transfer the ground moong dal and begin to mix it with Rava and ghee. Keep the flame to medium and stir continuously to avoid lumps formation. Do this for 15 mins till the mixture turns into deep golden color.

Pour the milk, water, and saffron strands and keep the flame low. Keep stirring until the liquids are absorbed. When the mixture turns thick add Stevia.
