  • Moong Dal: 250 gm (soak in water for 3-4 hrs and grind to a little coarse paste)
  • Raisins: 2 tbsps
  • Sliced Almonds,Cashews: 15-20 each
  • Saffron: 1 pinch
  • Green Cardamom Powder: 1tsp

Step 2: Heat 1 Cup clarified butter in a wok and add lentil paste. Stir fry continuously at low flame. First it will absorb all clarified butter and curdle up, it will be little difficult to keep stirring but don’t stop and keep frying stirring well. It will start becoming easy and will leave the clarified butter from sides of the wok.

Step 3: Boil milk in a separate vessel and add saffron. When milk gets its first boil add sugar and mix well, boil once again and turn off the flame. Keep it aside for next step.

Step 4: When clarified butter starts coming up leaving the lentil paste that’s the time when lentil is cooked nicely, now add green cardamom powder and half of fried dry fruits. Mix well and cook for further 5 minutes.

Step 5: Add Milk slowly and keep stirring to avoid lumps, cover and cook until milk is absorbed ~5-6 minutes.

Step 6: Uncover and cook at high flame until pudding comes to your desired consistency. Keep stirring continuously

Step 7: Garnish with the remaining fried dry fruits and serve hot. 😊
