Instant Moong Dal Halwa

I have this recipe bookmarked a long time back from Priya's space and it took so long for me to actually get around to make it at home. 

The only difference between Priya's pictures and mine were that mine turned out a darker shade as it looks like the moong dal flour I used is the Whole moong variety while the one Priya used seems like the dehusked moong dal flour.

Aside from the color of the halwa, it was so good and my little one couldn't have enough. My older one didn't like it too much but then I knew she wouldn't like it :). So the rest of us got to finish it off and were left licking our spoons, so to say.

I prepared this to offer as naivedyam and it suited me perfectly. This also fits the bill for day 2 week 4 of BM #34 under festival sweets.
Sending this to Srivalli's 'Kid's Delight - Festival Sweets' hosted by Sowmya as well.

Ingredients - 

Moong Dal flour 1/2 Cup
Milk 1 Cup
Sugar 5 Tbsp
Ghee 2 tbsp
Chopped Nuts for garnishing

Instant Moong Dal Halwa

Method Of Preparation -

In a non stick pan, add a tablespoon of ghee and roast the moong dal flour until it turns a shade of golden brown. Make sure the flour doesn't get burnt.

After the flour changes color and gives out a pleasant aroma, gradually add milk and whisk it so there are no lumps.

Keep stirring the mixture for about 8-10 min until the mixture looks somewhat dry.

Add some more ghee and sugar stirring it all the while.

After the halwa comes together as a single mass remove from fire, garnish with nuts and serve it warm.
