This is a very tasty Halwa usually made in the
cold days of winter. A must sweet dish on many occasions.
You just have to have strong arms to make this,
as it’s a lot of stirring and bhooning :
You can make it as a soft halwa or even make is
in pieces, I like it in pieces. It stays good long if you keep it in tin box.
So this is what you need for it:
1 1/2 cups Gram Lentils or Chane Ki Daal
(soaked overnight or soaked in hot water for
1 cup Sugar or to taste more….
1 1/2 cups Milk Powder – (I used Nido)
3-4 Small Cardamoms
1/2 cup Oil - first round
1/2 cup Oil - 2nd round
*Wash gram lentils and soak them in hot water for 2-3
hours. Or Soak it overnight :)
*In a heavy pan, boil the lentils till water dries and
lentils are tender.
*Grind the lentils in a food processor till smooth paste
In a wok heat 1/2 cup oil on medium heat and then add
*When they start to pop up, add the lentil
Stir till fragrant.
*Add sugar and mix well. Lower the heat and stir for
about 10-12 minutes.
*Add milk powder a little at a time, making sure no
*Add the 2nd half cup oil.
*Stir well till oil separates on the sides.
*Spread halwa in a tray and leave to cool.
*Sprinkle with chopped nuts and press in a little. After it cools, cut into
squares or diamonds and serve.
TIP: You know it's done when it's kind a like doughy
texture and crumbly.
