  • Take the milk and ad a pinch of color, ground cardamom powder and saffron to it. Add this mixture to the wok slowly now. You can add half the milk now, and keep mixing the whole thing. It would take around 10 minutes for the daal to absorb the milk.
  • Add the rest of the milk now and keep mixing until the halwa starts leaving ghee. Now, it is a good time to add the nuts and sugar. Once sugar melts, you are ready to go.


Keep the flame on low to medium. 
You have got to be patient with this dish. 
Serve hot and enjoy!
