    Wash and soak moong dal for 4 hours. Drain the water. Add the dal in a grinder and grind it to a fine paste using Manual mode. Use little or no water to make the dal into a fine paste.


    Heat a pan add ghee. Add sooji and besan, cook on low heat till it turns lightly brown. Turn the heat to low and let the ghee cool down a bit. Now add the ground dal and stir. On very low heat cook the dal till it starts to brown. As the dal will get cooked it will get a sandy texture.


    In another pan add water, sugar, saffron and cardamom powder. Give a boil to dissolve the sugar and turn off the heat and remove. Once the dal is evenly browned add the sugar syrup. Cook till the dal absorbs all of the syrup. Add chopped nuts. Add grated khoya at this stage. Stir, remove and serve hot.
