While we had been to Olives in Deccan Plaza, we were served this Moong Dal Halwa, it was dry and coarse, not the regular halwas that we had always.

Moong Dal - 100 1 cup
Ghee - 2 cups
Sugar - 1 cup
Water - 1/2 cup
Badam - 10 to 12 pieces
Pista - 6 pieces(unsalted)
Raisins - 6

Soak moong dal in water for 2 hours, drain and grind it coarsely. In a pan add sugar and 2 spoons of water and make sugar syrup. In another pan heat ghee and add moong dal to it. Keep mixing till it turns golden brown and leaves the sides. Put moong dal in sugar syrup and cook on low flame till all the ingredients mix well and blend together. Remove from fire and decorate it with badam, pista and raisins.
