Ashoka halwa |  Moong dal halwa | Paasi paruppu halwa recipe

Ashoka halwa is a very traditional and yummy South Indian halwa variety made with moong dal, wheat flour,sugar and ghee.It is one of the very old sweet recipes of South India. Originally they add wheat flour to this halwa which aids in thickening of the halwa quickly, but some people don't like the flavour of wheat flour so it is upto your taste preference to either add it or not. But here in this recipe I have added wheat flour and followed the traditional recipe. Check out how to make this delicious ashoka halwa recipe below with step by step pictures to guide you.
