Moong Dal Halwa has originated from Rajashtan and consumed in the cold winter months where it will keep the body warm. Sooji ka Halwa is quick to make and more popular in North India. Chana Dal Halwa is a Punjab style chana dal halwa made during festivals and celebrations. Carrot Halwa has its origins in North India. 

Slow cooked Halwas

Even a small portion is enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. However, there are quick-fix versions that you can cook in a jiffy too. So, worry not. The Moong Dal Halwa and Chana Dal Halwa are typical examples of slow-cooked halwas. Although there might be quick workarounds for these, the slow versions taste better because the dal loses its raw smell and imbibes a rich taste only when you cook it in a heavy-bottomed vessel for a while.
