Atta Halwa

The other day for prasad was looking for some easy sweet to be made. Was wondering what to make that the idea to make this halwa hit me. The thought transported me to a few years back when mom had made this halwa and the taste lingering my mouth.

I had never attempted making this but the thought of attempting this got me excited and all I needed was to speak to mom and get the recipe. Trust me when I say this is one of the most beautiful and easiest halwa to make. Even a beginner can make this as it doesn’t require much effort plus can be made with less than 5 ingredients. Can you beat that?

Atta Halwa (1)


Here goes the recipe:


Atta (Wheat Flour) : 1 cup

Ghee: ½ cup

Sugar: ¾ th to 1 cup

Water: 1 cup

Cardamom powder: 1 tsp

Nuts: 1 tbsp( optional)



1.Heat a pan, add ghee, flour, nuts (if adding) and roast on a very low flame for 7-8 minutes.

2.The ghee will first thicken and then loosen the flour so don’t worry about the consistency.

3.Add boiling water to this and keep mixing till the water is absorbed. The flame should be low.

4.Add sugar and stir well till the sugar is absorbed. Cook on a low flame for a few more minutes till the ghee starts separating.

5.Serve warm.



Hi, I am Kavita, the owner of this blog.There are many types of foodies; vegeterian, non vegetarian, eggeterian , so i thought foodies should be called "foodaterian". Hence the name.Like most of you, i too was an amateur cook who didn't know even the basics like how much water to be added to rice?. :) With time i have learned and would like to share and learn the recipes. Hope to get love and support from all you wonderful people. You can reach me at twitter:
