"Mixed Pulse Squares"


1/2 cup split bengal gram ( chana dal)
1/2 cup split yellow gram ( yellow moong dal)
1/2 cup dried whole milk ( mawa/khoya)
1+1/4 cup sugar
5 tbsp ghee ( clarified butter)
1 tbsp cardamom powder
chopped mixed dry fruits for garnish
1/4 cup water

  • Soak both the pulses for atleast 4 hours
  • Drain the water and coarsely grind the pulses ( you have an option of making it in a fine paste)
  • Heat the ghee in a non stick deep pan and add the pulse mixture to it
  • Fry the pulses on a low flame till all the water evaporates and u get a grainy flour texture. Switch off the gas.
  • Make the sugar syrup with three threads consistency ( In a pan heat water and sugar together, keep stirring till the back of the spoon gives you that consistency)
  • Add it to the pulse mix, stir well, add cardamom powder and mawa ( dried whole milk).
  • Mix properly for a smooth consistency
  • Remove the mixture on a pre-greased plate/tray and leave to set.
  • Garnish it with dry fruits 
  • Once cooled and set ( firm), cut into square or diamond pieces and serve

Note: Its important to use a non stick pan for cooking the pulses to retain the original flavours, avoid sticking and burning of the mixture.
