Wishing everyone a very Happy Diwali !
For a change this year I am posting a recipe nice and early for you all to try before Diwali. I made this over the weekend for sharing it with some of my friends. For a foodie like me Diwali is all about making, eating and sharing sweets =D
This is such an easy recipe and you can make this in a jiffy, so do give it a try and don’t forget to share too :)

Powdered sugar – 85 gm/ 1/3 cup
Cardamom pods -5 no
Ghee – ¼ cup/ 55 gm
Roast Moong dal for 8-10 minutes in a pan, stirring continuously until its golden brown.
Powder the dal in a mixie
Powder 85 gm of sugar with cardamom and keep it aside
In a pan add hot ghee and add the moong dal powder. Heat it on a low flame and roast for about 5 minutes stirring continuously, making sure that it doesn’t stick to the bottom or sides
