Moong Daal Halwa Shab e Barat Halwa Recipes

moong dal halwa


  • Spilt Moong dal/ Split Husked Mung Bean: 1/2 cup
  • Ghee/clarified butter: 1/4 cup (I mixed half of ghee with half of canola oil)
  • Sugar: 1/3 cup
  • Milk: 1/4 cup
  • Water: ¼ cup
  • Saffron: 6 threads
  • Cashews: 9 no
  • Raisins: 13 no



In a thick bottomed pan roast ½ cup moong dal until they become golden color and gives out nice aroma. It took about 7 minutes in medium flame. Then soak this roasted moong dal for overnight. Next morning, grind to a paste.
In a thick bottomed pan, heat 1/8cup of ghee and add ground dal paste and stir continuously, so that no lumps will form. This part is very tricky as the dhal cooks really fast, irrespective of the ghee.
Keep the heat at the lowest and keep stirring even after the dhal becomes thick.
Add the rest of the ghee intermittently and cook the dhal until aromatic and the ghee starts oozing out.
Soak saffron in 2 tablespoon of warm milk and keep aside.
