Atta halwa / Wheat halwa

Atta halwa / Wheat halwa is one of the easiest halwa recipes that can be made with very few ingredients. I have seen my mom and grandmom making this during my childhood days. You can make this sweet in ten minutes if you are making it in less quantity.

INGREDIENTS

Wheat flour – 1/2 cup

Sugar – 1/2 cup

Water – 1 cup

Ghee – 1/4 cup

Cashews – few

Raisins – few

  • Add water in a vessel and boil.
  • Once they started to boil, add sugar. Stir continuously until they dissolve. Keep it aside.
  • In a pan, add ghee and roast cashews and raisins.
  • Once they turn golden brown in colour, add the wheat flour and roast well.
  • The wheat flour changes in colour and you can feel nice aroma.
  • At this stage, add the sugar syrup slowly.
  • Stir continuously and make sure there are no lumps.
  • The halwa thickens and the ghee will start oozing out.
  • Serve hot.
