We Indians can compromise on anything, but our dessert platter should be sorted. We love our sweets like anything. Whether the delicacies are Indian sweets and halwa or cakes from the west, We enjoy all these.

Talking about sweets, the discussion will remain incomplete without talking about moong dal ka halwa. Moong dal halwa is not just a dish but an emotion that unites all of us. The taste is awesome, and the creamy texture is to die for.

It originates from Rajasthan and is often prepared in the winter to stay warm and cosy. It is prepared in pure ghee with mung lentils, milk, sugar, and nuts; sometimes cardamom powder is also added to increase its richness, taste, and aroma. It is cooked on a low flame until the milk dries up and we get a nice, creamy halwa. The balance of sweetness makes it an addictive and attractive dessert.

This dessert is packed with nutrition and health benefits. It is high in protein, which is good for your health. The ingredients also help keep the skin moisturised and glowing.

There are many variations in this dish. Some people like it the way it used to be in ancient times. Loaded with ghee and nuts, due to increasing health issues, some prefer it with a small amount of ghee and nuts. Sometimes moong is boiled separately to increase its richness, and by boiling them, it also becomes more healthy.

The instant pot is also used to prepare the halwa, while some like to make it in a kadhai. No function is complete without having moong dal halwa. Everyone enjoys it in the winter. You can make it at home as well, as the recipe is quite basic and simple. But if you are too busy to cook it, you can have it at some famous restaurants. It is equally delightful and yummy.
