I just simply adore this halwa always made on special occasions such as marriages. Posting here for safe keeping!

- 100 g sugar
- 1⁄2 glass water

- Heat water in a pan; add sugar and boil the mixture till sugar melts.
- Add this to the moong dal mixture and cook on a low flame till the dal and sugar blends well.
