Lentils as a dessert? Moong Dal Karah recipe
Trust me it works
Lentils are best known for being in savoury curries, rather than being in desserts, but adding a bit of sugar and some ghee transforms these ordinary lentils into something quite delicious... if I do say so myself.
Moong dal is a mung bean, also known as green gram lentils, which have been split. Karah is just another word for halwa which is traditionally made from flour, ghee and sugar. But in this recipe, we are substituting the flour for the dhal in order to get a sticky, jelly-like consistency.
