Hayagriva Recipe -- How to make Hayagriva -- Madhwa Hayagriva

Hi, Good Morning, Thank you, friends and viewers. Today I will post how to make Hayagriva recipe.
Hayagriva or hayagreevam is a sweet dish made with chana dal or bengal gram. We picked it from our far related grandmother. It is said that some of our family ancestors belong to Karnataka and we too have relatives and connections with Madhwas. So she must have picked it from them.
This dish is made particularly during Navaratri days in my home. On the sixth day or seventh day of these nine days, we have to offer sweet dish made with chana dal or besan. Every time I make this dish thought of taking photographs, but could not for some reason like running out of time or not arranged it properly or something else. This time, first I took the photographs, then only offered it to the goddess. ;-)
A very simple and less time taking dish to make. The maximum time it takes is for soaking chana dal only. We can add coconut and some dry fruits to it, but I did not add anything. Except for some cashew nuts. But I will be giving where to add coconut to it, so anybody who wants to add can add it too. We can make it with jaggery or sugar. To get the authentic Madhwa temple taste, prefer to make it with only jaggery.
