healthy sweet of pulses

What better than a bowl of healthy dessert and celebrating your happiness for the hard work done. Considering the fact that the said feat is from one who, a couple of months back was even scared to touch the mighty mouse ๐Ÿ™‚

But as they say โ€˜The desire for knowledge increase with the acquisition of itโ€™ and it proved to be true in my case.

healthy dessert of pulses

The easy and simple dessert recipe for celebrating this feat goes like this;


(Makes 2 servings)

  • 4-5 tsp. of De husked green gram
  • 1/2 lt.ย  of milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • 3 tsp. of Clarified butter or ghee
  • 100 gms of Jaggery
  • A few Almonds
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder

Method: Wash the green gram (moong dal dhuli) and dry it on a kitchen towel. Heat a heavy bottom kadai or wok and dry fry the green gram till it turn light brown in color.

Take off the green gram from the wok and pour 1 cup of water in it and let it boil. Add the fried green gram in water and let it cook till it becomes tender.

Pour 1/2 ltr ofย  milk in it and let it cook for another 15-20 minutes till the kheer becomes thick, add cardamom powder in it.

Crush the jaggery to make powder and add it in the wok. Let the mixture cook for another 5-7 minutes. Put off the flame and transfer the prepared kheer in another vessel.

Heat ghee in a small skillet and add crushed almonds in it, fry it for a few seconds. Pour this over the green gram kheer.
