Ingredients

  • Split green gram skinless (dhuli moong dal)
    1 1/4 cups
  • Raisins
    2 tablespoons
  • Mawa (khoya)
    2 cups
  • Ghee
    2 tablespoons
  • Cashewnuts
    2 tablespoons
  • Sugar
    1 cup
  • Rose water
    1 teaspoon

Method

Step 1


Wash and soak moong dal in three cups of water for five to six hours. Wash raisins and pat them dry. Break khoya into tiny granules. Drain dal, grind to a coarse paste and keep aside. Heat two tablespoons of ghee in a kadai, fry cashewnuts and raisins and keep aside.

Step 2


Heat sugar and one-fourth cup of water till sugar dissolves completely. Strain and heat mixture again till syrup reaches a two-string consistency. Heat remaining ghee and fry dal paste over medium heat till it leaves the sides of the kadai.

Step 3


Add khoya and cook for five minutes, stirring continuously. Pour in syrup and continue to cook for seven to ten minutes till the mixture gets a fudge like consistency.

Step 4


Add rose water and pour mixture onto a greased plate and spread evenly. Decorate with cashewnuts and raisins. When set, cut into square or diamond shaped pieces.
