Ingredients

Number of serving: 2
Yellow split lentil - 1 cup

Sugar - 2 to 2.5 cups

Ghee - 1 cup

Whole wheat flour - 0.5 cup

All purpose flour - 0.5 cup

Milk - 1 tbsp

Red food coloring - few drops

Saffron - a big pinch

Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp

Preparation

  • Soak saffron in 1 tbsp of milk, add food colouring and cardamom powder. Keep aside.
  • Rinse the yellow split lentil nicely and soak it for about half an hour. Pressure cook it with about 3 cups of water till soft. Mash till smooth or else use a hand blender to make a smooth paste. Mix sugar with this paste.
  • In a non-stick wok, heat one cup of ghee in a pan, add the wheat flour and all purpose flour. Stir until there are no lumps. Keep stirring on a low-medium flame until there's a nice aroma and it turns golden.
  • Now add the yellow split lentil + sugar mixture and stir well until well cooked, add the milk mixture and stir well and cook for a few more minutes until the halwa leaves the sides of the pan.
  • Ashoka Halwa is now ready to serve. Serve garnished with nuts or just like that. Try the south Indian moong ka halwa.
