Chaana daal Halwa / Cholar daal er halwa/ booter daal er halwa

It’s a very simple recipe with few ingredients . But the flavor and taste depend on your patience . You need to cook the daal in ghee for a longer period of time . The longer you cook , the yummier it is . But you have to stir continuously while cooking and here lies your patience .. 🙂 Another thing , don’t be miser to put enough ghee, which will be added gradually , not at a time, to ensure a very one of a kind halwa to remember .. 😀


Chaana daal ( split yellow peas) 1 cup
Ghee 3/4 th cup + 1/2 cup ( this halwa absorbs ghee and oil so fast , so for yummier and glossier version of halwa, you need enough ghee or oil)
Sugar 3/4th cup ( Adjust according to your taste)
Liquid regular milk 2 cups
2 cardamoms
1 cinnamon stick
1 bay leaf
Dry fruits like raisins and nuts


1. Soak the daal for atleast 7/8 hours to get the best result . Boil the daal with 2 cups of refular full fat milk . Dry up the milk , keeping it little moist . Blend the daal without adding any water or milk .

2. Heat 3/4th cup of ghee in a wide bottomed vessel . Add the cardamom , cinnamon , bay leaf . Add the daal . Fry the daal on medium low flame . Keep Stirring . After a while you will see , the ghee is completely absorbed by the daal . Keep frying the daal. adding ghee little by little . Keep cooking the daal atleast for 20- 30 minutes and time to time ,add ghee little by little. Stir continuously .

3. Add the sugar and keep stirring . You will find after a little while the color is changed and the halwa is coming off from the vessel . add the dry fruits into it .

4. Transfer immediately on a greased plate . Take out the garam masalas from it . Garnish with dry fruits and if you want to cut it like barfis, let it set for hours and then cut in the shape of barfi . You may keep it in the refrigerator to set.


1. as I said earlier , this halwa needs to be cooked in ghee for a long time , the more you cook it in ghee , before adding sugar, the tastier and flavorful it is .

2. This Halwa need more ghee/ oil than other halwas . So use generously but don’t add all at a time . You have to add gradually .

3. If you don’t want to use ghee solely , then you can mix ghee with oil , or you can cook it in oil only, but add 2 tbl spoon of ghee , just before you are turning off the stove . That would make it taste like halwa cooked in ghee .

2. Heat ghee in a pan. Add the cardamom pods, cinnamon and bayleaf. fry for a while..Now add the blended daal . Fry until the raw smell goes away . You may add additional extra ghee , when the liquid dries out .Now add the condensed milk. You may add chopped nuts and raisins at this point.

3. When everything comes together, i.e, it comes off the pan or the halwa pulls away from the sides of the pan, your halwa is ready to serve. You may sprinkle keora water before serving..

Cooking Tips:

1. Those who don’t want to use ghee, use vegetable oil and add 1 tea spoon of ghee at the end, that would make your halwa taste just like the halwa cooked in ghee. It will enhance the aroma and flavor too.

2. Take out all the spices before you serve.

3. In this recipe I didn’t boil the daal..so when you add it in the ghee fry for a while..:)
