A richly-textured mixture of moong dal paste and crumbled mava is cooked in sugar syrup, and flavoured aesthetically with desi spices to make a delicious Moong Dal Barfi that looks appetising and tastes fabulous. The best part about this irresistible Moong Dal Barfi is that it stays well at room temperature for more than two weeks, which makes it a nice treat to stock in your kitchen shelf! While preparing it, make sure you let the sugar syrup cool for a minute before proceeding; else the barfi will turn hard.
