Hope you all have enjoyed Diwali at its fullest.
Diwali is a festival of not only lights but we all enjoy it thoroughly in many terms like home decoration, making different pakwaans, greeting people and many more.
So we all have super hectic time during this Festival. We at Spoons of flavour by Aarti, made 56 bhog for God/Godess and served them. It was really superhectic time but at the same time enjoyable too.
Sharing with you all our one of the Diwali sweet “Dal Badaam Halwa” recepie.
Dal badam Halwa
250 gm yellow moongdal( soaked overnight)
250 gm almonds( peeled & grounded corsely)
250 gm khoya
250 gm ghee
1cup water to make sugar water
10-15 saffron strands
20-25 peeled pistachio
chopped almonds( optional)
In a thick pan, heat ghee
Grind soaked moongdal & add to ghee
Keep stirring dal to avoid lumps & sticking at bottom of pan
When it turns it colour to little pink add almonds to it & keep stirring it on low flame
Keep stirring it till it changes it colour again, then add khoya to it
I have used homemade khoya,you can use any.On other gas,boil water & add sugar to it
Please note we dont have to make sugar syrup,only sugar water is required so boil till sugar melts & put off the flame
Keep stirring till the halwa turns to good golden colour
Put off the gas when it turns to good golden colour
Now let it cool down a little.*Another point to note is sugar water & halwa both should not be hot at the time of mixing
Either of one should be hot & other one should be hot
Mix sugar water in halwa.Add saffron strands soaked in milk,elaichi powder,pistachios,chopped almond and mix it properly
Now it is ready to serve.You can store it in airtight box & keep in fridge when it comes to normal temperature.
