first time I was very hesitant to prepare the ICC post.Was I
lazy?..busy??..no..somehow I was not sure how this halwa would turn out and decided not to participate this month. Normally I am done with my posts much ahead of time and everyone knows that, so Preeti called me to
ask the feedback on this sweet.She seemed very confused so I decided to do
the post. Padma was sweet enough to explain me all the details.And, here I am
..prepared the halwa just in time…and glad that I tried it.
¼ cup........... rice,roasted
¼ cup ...........udad
¼ cup........... grated
the rice and udad daal separately.
Grind to a
slightly coarse powder.
Add jaggery and
adding the flours, stirring continuously, so no lumps are formed.
Cook on slow
fire for a few minutes.
perhaps you could roast the daal a little less!!
This halwa turned out
something like the udad daal halwa that we make, but definitely a easier and
much lighter version.I could have added 2 tbsp extra ghee..and it would have
been the real Punjabi Maah de daal da halwa. This Halwa is really very healthy and nutritious.
Must tell you that it was appreciated by all the halwa lovers in
the family.Thanks Valli..I am glad I participated..thanks Padma..and Preeti for
