I’ve been exploring a lot of Desi delicacies lately…particularly after my India trip. Food, in particular is one single point…that connects me directly to my roots. No matter where I live…the gut memory is so strong…I really do enjoy recreating every dish from my childhood memoirs. It instantly transforms me to my homeland and my happy childhood. :) So, here is one such dish – Channa Dal Burfi.


  • 1 cup cooked chana dal
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2-5 pieces, coconut – grated (just the white part)
  • 1/4 cup clarified butter
  • 1 pinch of saffron (maybe)
  • 1 pinch of cardamom seeds powder
  • Just your favorite nuts to garnish (maybe)
  • And, that’s it…I guess!


Blend the cooked chana dal without adding any water and set aside. In a wide wok, heat sugar and a cup of water. Now, turn in the blended lentils, coconut and all the other ingredients too. Once it turns out without any moisture, remove from heat. Turn it into a a flat dish and cut into desired shapes. Enjoy.
