Blog Anniversary and Shahi Moong Dal Halwa

Celebrating my 1st Blog Anniversary and also the 100th post with our traditional Indian sweet Shahi Moong Dal Halwa. One year back, I started Dees Kitchen on last Christmas. I am very proud of this milestone. Thank you so much all my readers and blogger friends, and of course my family. It's been a lovable journey for me. I made so many blogger friends and learnt a lot. Here is the recipe of Shahi Moong Dal Halwa...

Cinnamon Powder       a pinch
Cardamom Powder     1/4 tsp


* Wash and soak dal in water for 3-4 hours.
