Channa Dal Halwa / Kadala Paruppu Halwa


This is really a very delicious halwa. I didnt expect that this halwa would turn out this much good. When i made this halwa and gave to my family members, they were asking whether this is almond halwa.... ha ha ha.. nobody believed it, it is made of the channa dal/kadalai paruppu. After i showed the step wise pictures only even my hubby believed... I am very happy and proud to join the group SNC started by Divya of You too can cook Indian Food and realise now, that I should have joined it before itself. Missed many delicious recipes... wahhh. Though I prepared this halwa in the first week of March itself, but now only, found time to post it. Now I am really waiting for the next exciting challenge.

Ingredients
  • Channa dal / Kadalai paruppu – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 2 cups
  • Khoya – 1 cup
  • Cardamon Powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Saffron strands - a pinch (optional)
  • Nuts like, cashews, almonds, pistas – few
  • Raisins – few
  • Ghee – 4 tsp

Method

  • Wash and Soak channa dal for 2 hrs.
  • Filter the water and drain completely.
  • Grind the channa dal with cardamom powder in a food processor or mixer grinder and make a powder. ( little coarse should be ok).
  • In a non stick wok, add the 4 tsp ghee first and add the powdered channa dal and star stirring.
  • To this add the sugar and grated khoya.
  • Keep on stirring, until it thickens.
  • Add the saffron strands.
  • Add the fried, cashews and raisins, and almonds.
  • Grease a plate with ghee, and transfer the content and allow to cool.
  • Delicious halwa is ready.
