Chana dal has a richer flavour than other pulses, which helps in the preparation of a mouth-watering halwa. Soaked and ground dal is sautéed till a rich aroma is achieved, and then prepared into a traditional halwa, flavoured with cardamom and saffron. Although Chana Dal Halwa requires a bit of prior soaking and takes a bit of time to cook, it is a worthwhile effort, which is sure to be enjoyed by all your guests and family members.
