Moong Daal Halwa/Mung Bean Dessert
























"Moong daal Halwa is a rich and classic recipe from Rajasthan state of India. This recipe is full of protein and keeps body warm during freezing winters. In India people make this recipe especially on festival like Holi, Diwali or in winters. This recipe is bit time consuming and requires patients to sauté the moong daal but believe me every minute worth to relish this mouthwatering dish. I prefer to make in quantity as it can be stored refrigerated for several weeks. Microwave or add milk to warm on stove top and enjoy."
