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.
