Chana dal, split bengal gram is soaked, roasted well in lots of ghee until aromatic, cooked in milk and added with sugar to make this simple sweet, chana dal halwa.
I was thinking to post something simple and sweet as Holi special recipe, I though first I would try moong dal halwa, but then I saw this one in Tarla dalal and decided to make chana dal halwa. Never expected this much tasty result to be honest.
But I knew it would turn out great when the aroma of chana dal while roasting it in ghee was amazing. Some thing like mysore pak smell. I would say it was so easy after you finish roasting the chana dal fragrant.
I have tasted moong dal halwa recently twice in buffets. But both were not at all good, very less sweet. Now I am confident could make moong dal halwa better the same way as this one.
