Few days back I was loading pictures from my computer to external hard drive to create some space and realised there were many dishes I'd made, clicked pictures , but hadn't blogged about. Thought let sort out them first before I crave, cook and click for new ones and blog about.

In that folder I found Masoor Daal Halwa recipe pictures and thought it's right time to give them attention as so numerous and varied  Indian festival season is already here. Festivals are at the heart of people's lives in India and Indians living abroad. One can celebrate any festival with so much fun and special food and sweets.




This Masoor Daal Halwa, I prepared last year for prasad. Method of this halwa it's exactly like Moong Daal Halwa. It can be prepared for any festivals or get together.  The taste was the same as Moong Daal Halwa, delicious and yummy! So why not prepare this Halwa in this festive season and enjoy with friends and family.

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
