Instant Moong Dal Halva

Moong dal halva is a very delicious dessert , prepared with soaked and ground moong dal. But this is the instant version of making moong dal halva without soaking and can be prepared quickly.

1/2 cup moong dal 
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup ghee
250 ml full cream milk
10 cashew nuts
10 almonds
2 tblsp raisins
2 tsp cardamom pdr


  • Heat a pan and roast moong dal on a medium flame until it turns golden brown
  • Once it comes to room temperature grind it coarsely (fine rava consistency)
  • Put 4 tblsp ghee in the pan and add powdered moong dal 
  • Roast it on a medium flame untill golden brown and you get  nice aroma  . It takes about 5 to 10 mims
  • Simmer the gas flame and slowly add the milk to the roasted dal , and mix continuously
  • Add one cup water and stir until it becomes dense
  • Once it becomes thick mass add the sugar and mix well
  • Add the remaining ghee, cardamom pdr  and nuts roasted in ghee 
  • Serve hot and enjoy.
Note: I had some dharwad peda lying in the fridge. So I used it in this halva in place of sugar and the taste was awesome.
