Today’s recipe is Mr. husband’s one of the MOST Favorite recipe-Gujarati Mag ni dal no shiro commonly known as moong dal halwa.It is a classic Indian dessert recipe which always serves hot at the end of the meal.It is very rich and popular Indian sweet recipe.

There are two methods to prepare Sheera,

  • One is a Traditional method in which you need to soak lentils first and then make a fine paste and use this moist paste.
  • The another is quite easy as you need to make a fine powder without soaking.

If you follow the first method, It takes looonnnnggg time to roast dal properly which makes the method difficult and lengthy.It takes lots of patience to sauté the dal and prepare the Moong Dal Halwa, and it will probably require a little extra ghee too! However, the outcome is worth every minute of extra effort you put into it. You can make a larger quantity of this recipe and store it refrigerated for several weeks. Just add a little milk to the halwa before reheating it.

however , he other method is quite easy.

I am following the second method here. It is quite easy to make and the flavor is same as you get in first method. The method I am following to prepare halwa requires crushing the moong dal to prepare powder as the first step.
