Moong Dal Halwa (Sheera)
The taste of hot Moong Dal Sheera is heavenly with an endless scope of experiment.
    Preparation Method
  1. Wash and soak the beans for 4 hours. Remove the skin as much as possible. Drain and grind it to a coarse paste. Put paste in a fine sieve to remove excess water.
  2. On a low flame, melt ghee in a wide, heavy bottomed pan. Remove the pan from fire. Add the paste. Stir well. Reheat the pan. Stir continuously till the paste is roasted to a light, golden brown colour and a sweet aroma emanates.
  3. Add water and milk. Stir continuously. Cook till all the liquid is absorbed. Add saffron paste and sugar.
  4. Cook on a low flame till sugar melts. Stir continuously till the mixture thickens and ghee separates. Switch off the flame.
  5. Add cardamom powder. Mix well. Let it cool in the same pan.
  6. Occasionally stir till it cools. Garnish and serve hot.
    Additional Note
  • Proportion of milk and water depends on individual liking.
