I have a special trick to add awesome taste to chana dal halwa recipe which no one else knows. I am making desserts recipes for long time and I know many tips to make foods tasty.
This is no doubt very tasty halwa . We usually cook suji halwa, aata halwa and this chana dal halwa and we like this one as it is the most tasty one. I also like badam halwa because it is also very delicious.
