Shrikhand 7358_5

Hello all and a very Happy New Year! We wish for the best and hope this year brings in the best for everyone.

I have been gone for a while: away from technology, and all social media,  spending the most precious time with my family for the past few weeks. It was indeed the long desired, required and a replenishing break for all of us. We are going to be missing one another now. But life has to move ahead, right? I hope all of you have had a good holiday as well and is ready to start this year.

Moong Dal Halwa: Yellow Moong Halwa

 

Moong Dal Halwa 5520-1

Moong Dal or the husked yellow Moong Halwa is a popular confection in the northern and north western regions of India. This is made usually during the winter months. The lentils are slowly cooked in ghee releasing its rich, nutty aroma. It is sweet and redolent of cardamom and saffron.

The biggest festival in India, Diwali just went by. According to some Indian calendars, we have stepped into another new year. From one year to another, from one day to the next, we move ahead; marked by days that evoke intense nostalgia and at the same time paving paths for more to look back to in the future days.
