Moong Dal Halwa


1 cup yellow moong dal
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup ghee
1/2 cup khoya - I used milk powder instead
a pinch of saffron
1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
slivered almonds for garnish


Soak the moong dal in water for 6 t 7 hours. Once they are soft, coarse grind them - add very little water if required to do so.
In a karahi add the ghee and to this add the ground moong dal. Mix it well on medium heat and stir at all times. When the mixture has no more water and it turns to a nice golden brown, add the suagr and the khoya and mix well. The mixture should be incorporated well. Now add the saffron, cardamom powder and the slivered almonds and mix well.
Serve as a nice and warm dessert after yummy dinner.
