A HALWA a day keeps my tensions away….lol
Coming from a gastronomic family, my love for food has been well defined by now. For those who are new to my blog, lemme tell you all that sweets and desserts is my most favorite column in my blog. You will find the maximum number of posts in this category …lol
My mom says that my dad had a strong tooth. Though after his ailments he was restricted to diet food but his longings for sweets and desserts have certainly passed on to me and my sister. So keeping the family tradition alive, today i bring you one of my father’s favorite halwa – Chana Dal Halwa
I have seen my mom making this awesome delicacy even during festivals. Her way of preparation was quite elaborated. I tried following her recipe couple of times to make dal ki burfi. But recently i came across a delightful recipe of one of my co-blogger Naina Puthran of SPICE IN THE CITY
The recipe is adapted from her website /log and can be followed at http://spiceinthecity.co/2014/10/17/diwali-sparkles-chana-dal-burfi-split-chickpeas-fudge/
Though the original recipe is of chana dal burfi but i did very slight variations to make it as a halwa. If you actually want to know the real definition of ‘melt in mouth’..this recipe is a must try.
