Moong Dal Burfi

moong dal burfi


Moong dal burfi/halwa is one of my favorite sweet dishes ever! I have been craving for the lip-smacking dessert for quite some time, but the time and effort required to churn this out has kept me from trying my hands at making moong dal burfi. Yesterday night, I decided to give it a go and soaked 2 cups of moong dal.

Unfortunately since morning, there was power outage in my locality. Suddenly, power came for 5 minutes and this was an opportunity for me to grind the lentil. Then again there was a powercut. Nevertheless, I did not bother, since I had made the most of the opportunity when it was restored for 5-10 minutes.


I remember the good old office days when we would get to eat moong dal halwa as a sweet dish more often.

I would especially wait for lunch and never check the menu, except the sweet dish part, for I always wanted to relish moong dal halwa or burfi.

I was fortunate enough to get the same almost every other day. Yes, fond memories there!

Finally, I started with moong dal burfi preparation.

Here is my moong burfi recipe:

1 cup - moong dal - yellow lentils -(I had soaked 2 cups, but did not have the courage to make 2 cups)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
sugar as per taste (I usd 3 tbsp as I keep a count of my sugar intake)
green cardamom
Ghee (clarified butter)- 3 tbsp
Pinch of haldi (optional)
A Nonstick pan

Procedure
  • Take a nonstick pan.
  • Add ghee.
  • Then add ground moong dal. Keep on low flame and keep roasting. It will take a lot of effort. But the outcome is worth all your efforts.

  • Simultaneously keep water, sugar, haldi, cardamom, and milk in a pan for boiling.
  • Once the dal is fried well, add the boiled milk-water-elaichi-sugar combination.
  • Keep stirring until the dal collects in the center and forms a mass.
  • Grease an aluminum foil. Pour the roasted dal over it. Press the dal with a plate.
  • Cut into pieces and enjoy.


I must tell here that this was the recipe of moong dal halwa but I used little ghee, I decided to give it the shape of a burfi.
Tastes good and makes a great treat!
