Rajasthani Moong Dal Halwa


1 cup moong dal
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup ghee
Finely chopped nuts

Soak the dal in sufficient water for atleast two hours. Make a fine paste of it with very less water.

Cook the moong dal paste with ghee till a nice smell comes. Keep stirring it else it will stick to the vessel. In another pan melt the sugar with the water and add the cooked moong dal. Mix well and cook till the mixture starts leaving the sides of the pan. Add nuts and mix well.
