A classic recipe that is relished throughout Rajasthan during the winter months, as it is supposed to keep the body warm and protect it from the bitter winter cold. It is considered to be auspicious, and is often prepared during Holi, Diwali and weddings too. It takes a long time and lots of patience to sauté the dal and prepare the Moong Dal Halwa, and it will probably require a little extra ghee too! However, the outcome is worth every minute of extra effort you put into it. You can make a larger quantity of this recipe and store it refrigerated for several weeks. Just add a little milk to the halwa before reheating it.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Shalini, Make sure your flame is just as mentioned in the recipe. If you feel raw smell is yet there which actually should not happen do cook it a little more.
