|atte ka halwa|
Atte ka halwa is one of my favorite halwas. It's very delicious and while preparing it, don't skimp on ghee or water otherwise you may end up getting lumps. Atte ka halwa is an any time dessert since atta or wheat flour is available at all times in most Indian households.
Recipe of atte ka halwa
1 cup atta (whole wheat flour)
3/4 cup ghee (clarified butter)
3/4 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups of water
Chopped and toasted nuts for garnishing
1. Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed vessel (kadhai). Add atta and roast it till it turns brownish.
2. While roasting atta, heat water in a separate pan and add sugar to it. Let it come to boil and cook till sugar melts completely.
3. Add sugar mixed water or syrup (chashni) to the roasted atta. Cook stirring, till water gets completely absorbed. Turn off heat. Take out atte ka halwa in a serving bowl and garnish with nuts like cashew nuts, raisins and almonds.
