Chane ki Daal ka Halwa

on July 6, 2012


I am sharing a family recipe of a dessert. Its sweet and soggy taste that just fills your mouth with blissfull sweetness that you just can’t ignore. I usually make this on special ocassions, and yesterday there was a religious festival for which i made and served to all neighbourhood and family. And now to you:)


-Chane ki daal ( chick pea lentil ) 1/2 kg

-Sugar 1 1/2 cups

-Milk 3 cups

-Saffron strings 5-6

-Green cardemom 5-6 crushed

-Ghee/ purified butter 2 1/2 cups


Soak the lentil overnight. Boil in the morning till soft. Grind it.

Heat ghee in a large pan and fry green cardemom for a while then add the boiled and grinded lentil with milk and saffron. Cook on low flame until becomes thick and start to leave the sides of the pan. Add sugar and cook again until it changes in colour a bit. You can keep cooking it at this stage if you like it more darker but i prefer its light and golden color.

Sprinkle with dessicated coconut and decorate with silver foil if you like.


Kitchen Tip:

If shredded coconut gets dry, make extra delicious by toasting. Sprinkle it on a baking sheet and heat in moderate oven, shaking occasionally to brown evenly
