Moong Dal Halwa

Every time you think of making the Moong Dal Halwa you wish there was an easier way rather than the long drawn out process. You need not look any further, after a lot of experimenting I have finally figured out a recipe that makes your life easy without compromising the taste.

Prep Time: 10 min     Cooking Time: 25 min


1/2 tea cup moong dal (yellow)
1/2 tea cup sugar
1/2 tea cup + 1 tbsp ghee
1 tea cup milk
1 /4 tea cup water
1/4 tsp cardamom powder
Few strands of Saffron mix with 1 tbsp of milk
Almond and raisin for garnishing


  1. Grind the dry moong dal roughly, don’t make smooth powder
  2. Heat the ghee in a vessel, add moong dal and sauté until fragrant
  3. Add water & milk and mix it well
  4. Prepare the pressure cooker, put the dal vessel in it and cook it for 2 whistles
  5. Remove the dal mixture from the cooker, add the sugar and mix well (At this time If you feel halwa is dry you can add 1/4 tea cup of extra milk)
  6. Cook again for 2 whistles
  7. Remove from the cooker and microwave it for 2 minutes or until the ghee releases
  8. Add saffron and cardamom powder
  9. Garnish it with almond and raisin
