  • Drain the water and grind the moong dal into a coarse paste without adding water.
  • Set aside.

Making Sugar Syrup:

  • In a saucepan, heat water and sugar together over medium heat.

  • Keep the sugar syrup warm on low heat.

Cooking the Moong Dal:

  • In a heavy-bottomed pan or kadai, heat ghee over medium heat.
  • Add the ground moong dal paste to the pan and cook, stirring continuously.

Cook until Golden Brown:

  • Cook the moong dal paste in ghee until it turns golden brown and releases a nutty aroma.
  • This may take about 20-25 minutes.

Combining with Sugar Syrup:

  • Carefully pour the warm sugar syrup into the pan with the cooked moong dal.
  • Stir well to combine and cook until the mixture thickens.

Flavoring and Cooking:

  • Add cardamom powder to the mixture for flavour.
  • Optionally, add saffron strands for colour and aroma.
  • Mix everything well and continue cooking until the halwa reaches the desired consistency.

Garnishing and Serving:

  • Once the Moong Dal Halwa thickens and leaves the sides of the pan, turn off the heat.
  • Garnish with sliced almonds and pistachios for added texture and flavor.


  • Serve the Moong Dal Halwa warm as a dessert.
  • Enjoy its rich, creamy texture and aromatic flavours!
