Chandrakanti


Ingredients:
2 Cup Yellow moong daal
1/2 Cup Rice
1 1/2 Cup Sugar
Pinch of Cardamom powder
Oil for fry

Preparation:
Soak moong dal and rice in separate bowl for at least 2 hours.
Make coarse paste of moong dal and rice separately. Do not add too much water. Grind these to thick paste consistency, then mix both and keep it aside.
Boil water in a deep dish equivalent to moong dal and rice paste, with sugar. Add cardamom powder.
Once the water get boiled reduce the heat to medium and slowly add on the moong dal paste.
In this point you have to stir the mixture constantly, until it becomes thick.
One way to check that the paste is done: check it with wet fingers and if it does not stick, then remove it from heat.
Grease a plate with some oil or ghee(Clarified butter) and spread the mix evenly. Let the mixture cool down completely.
Now cut into your desired shape.
Heat oil for frying and fry the cut shapes in a low flame till they are golden brown.
