Moong Dal Halwa

It is a very traditional halwa that is usually made on festivals or marriages or most commonly Diwali. My another attempt to make Halwa with Moong dal. I also added condensed milk to this halwa to make it richer and tastier. A perfect and pretty Moong Dal Halwa.

During festival time, we all made halwa first in own home. This time I made with lentils, for this I choose Moong dal/ skinless split green gram or Yellow split gram. You can preserve this halwa for 3-4 days in winter days in airtight glass with lid. It’s really superb in taste .You can add saffron for color and nuttier with some more flavors.
