Chana Dal Halwa - SNC Challenge 6

This month at the SNC Challenge Chana Dal Halwa/Barfi,  the North team challenged us to make this sweet, thanks to    Kirti for explain so well and  explaining well this recipe, we at home loved this so much.
From the South  Swasthi challenged the North team to make this delicious biryani. SNC is the brain child of Divya Pramil. I proud to be a member of this  challenge.

I am part of the South Team


1 Cup Chana Dal(Chickpea
¾  Cup Ghee
½  Cup Sugar
2 ½  Cup Whole Milk

1 tsp  Cardamom powder
6 Almonds (chopped)


Wash and Soak dal in 2 Cup water for 4 hours.

Boil the soaked dal in 1 Cup of water until its just done, keep extra water if any let it cool down.

Mash the boiled dal with back of spoon to make grainy paste.

Heat ghee in heavy bottom pan. Add mashed dal and fry on medium heat 15 minutes by this time raw smell will vanish and nutty aroma will spread around. Also you will able to see ghee at edges separating  with dal.

Now add 1/2 Cup milk and fry on high heat till it get dry. Again add ½  cup milk and fry.

Repeat this until all milk is used.

Finally mix in cardamom powder, sugar with chopped almonds and fry on high heat for another 5 minutes.

Serve hot or cold.
