Moong Dal Sheera

This is a sweet made out of Moong dal. My son is a big fan of this sweet and I like making this sweet coz it is very easy to prepare... (like most other sweets!!)

Moong Dal: 1 cup
Milk: 1 cup (hot)
Water: 1 cup (hot)
Sugar: 1 1/2 cups
Cardamom powder: 1 tsp
Ghee: 8 tbsp
Almond slivers: 1 tbsp

Soak the Moong dal in water for 3 to 4 hours
Grind the dal into a coarse paste using very little water.
Heat a kadai, melt the ghee and add the moong dal paste and cook on a low flame stirring continously.
When it slightly changes colour and emanates a distinct aroma, add 1 cup of warm milk and equal quantity of water.
When the water and milk are absorbed, add sugar and cook on a low flame till the ghee separates
Add the cardamom powder and almonds and mix properly.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
