Chana Dal Halwa Recipe

Do you know that the delicious chana dal halwa can be made in less than 30 to 35 mins. The taste is just heavenly and it is super healthy for you all.

I personally in love with making this halwa, it is one of the basic halwa recipe that anyone can make. It is very straight forward.

This halwa gets its original taste from the roasting part, so keep cooking the halwa in the ghee till it gets nice and golden. Once it is golden brown add milk and water and continue the cooking. The more ghee you add to the halwa the more taste it gets.

This chana dal halwa is just great for any parties, since it is the summer season i am sure you will all love it.
