I modified my old post by including a video of chana dal halwa to get better understand the recipe

Chana dal halwa is a very tasty, traditional rich flavor with a mouth-watering taste dessert which usually is made at any special event like shab-e-rat in India and Pakistan but I love to eat this so I often make it at home without any special events. 
Chana dal has a richer flavor than other pulses, which lends itself well to the preparation of a mouth-watering halwa. Soaked and ground dal is sautéed till a rich aroma is achieved, and then prepared into a traditional halwa flavored with cardamom, clove, and cinnamon

My Latest Video Chana Dal Halwa:


It is important to stir the dal mixture continuously when sauteing it. although the chana dal halwa requires a bit of prior soaking and takes a bit of time to cook, it is a worthwhile effort, which is sure to be praised by your guest and family members as one of the perfect desserts for entertaining  

Chana dal halwa is prepared with desi ghee or Clearfield ghee but I don’t like the taste of desi ghee so I prepared it with regular ghee if you like then you can cook with it. this halwa is prepared with a few ingredients in which are added sugar, dry fruits, ghee, and sprinkle some kewra essence
