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 This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
