Trivia Tadka

 Chane Ki Dal ka Halwa is a traditional Kashmiri dessert. Delicately flavoured with cardamom, keora (exotic Indian plant also known as kevda) and saffron, this halwa tastes best when eaten hot and fresh. A heavy-bottom pan is required to cook the halwa.


  • Bengal gram (chane ki dal) (250 gm)
  • Clarified butter (ghee) ( 250 gm)
  • Sugar (250 gm)
  • Green cardamom (elaichi) (10)
  • Buchanania lanzan (chironji) (1 tsp)
  • Almonds (badam), skinned and sliced (1 tbsp)
  • Raisins (kishmish) ( 1 tbsp)
  • Keora water (1 tsp)


  • Soak dal in water for 2–3 hr, drain and grind coarsely. Set aside.
  • Heat ghee in a heavy-bottom vessel, and once hot add the ground dal.
  • Stir continuously till it is lightly fried.
  • Add sugar and a cup of water. Stir again.
  • Crush cardamoms lightly to a coarse powder. Add the ground cardamom powder along with chironji, a few sliced almonds and raisins.
  • When the water is absorbed and ghee floats to the surface, add a drop of keora water and mix.
  • Serve the halwa onto a plate, garnish with the sliced almonds and serve warm.
