One of my favourite,
Chana dal: 1 cup
Jaggery: 1cup
Cardamom Powder 1 tsp
Cashew nuts and dry grapes few
Ghee 250 grams.
How to do it:  Pressure cook chana dal, (my mother cooks it directly) since it takes long time,  I cook it in pressure cooker. Fry cashew nuts and dry grapes, keep it aside.
Boil jaggery adding little water to it and then filter it.
Add this jaggery to dal and saute it adding little little ghee till dal leaves the edges of the bowl.
Add cardamom powder.
Add fried nuts and grapes and serve hot.
Easy and simple sweet.
