ASOKA HALWA


Asoka halwa... wonder why this sweet got this name!!!This is supposed to be famous Tanjore sweet.My sil taught me this. But yesterday i tried the way that my dad told me( he used to tell me new dishes if he finds it interesting).There is not much difference in taste between the two methods.
INGREDIENTS:
Wheat flour- 1/4cups
Moong dhal-1 cup(cooked)
Sugar-3 cups
Cinnamon powder- pinch
Cardamom-2
Ghee/ refined oil-2 cups
Kesari colour(opt)
Cashew( for decoration)
METHOD:
1)Pressure cook moong dhal with water.
2)When cool mash it.
3)Mix wheat flour in water.(My sil's recipe doesn't have this)
4)Mix sugar,wheat,moong dhal .
5)Cook the ingredients by adding half of the oil/ghee .
6)When its almost done add cinnamon(My sil's recipe doesn't have this), cardamom.
7)Add remaining oil/ghee and remove when the paste leaves the side(it will be non sticky)
8)Decorate with nuts.
