Atte ka Halwa

It’s a simple dessert made with Atta (whole-wheat flour), sugar and ghee. You only need these 3 basic ingredients to make Atte ka Halwa.


  • 1/2 cup Atta (whole wheat flour)
  • 1/2-cup ghee
  • 1/2-cup sugar
  • 1.5-cup water
  • 3-4 green cardamom.


1) In a heavy bottom pan melt ghee. Then add Atta to it.

2) Roast until flour is golden brown in color and leaves a nice aroma.

3) Meanwhile, heat 1 cup water in a pan on another stove. The water is boiling hot when you add it to the Ghee-Atta mix. So keep it ready to go.

4) Now, add hot water and sugar to the Ghee-Atta mix.

5) Continue to stir the Atta Halwa and cook until it turns brown in color and gives a nice aroma, take around 6 to 7 minutes on medium heat or cook till ghee oozes out and Atta leaves sides of pan. Be careful to not burn the Atta-Halwa here.

6) Add grounded green cardamom
