» How to Make Atte Ka Halwa

  1. Heat ghee in a non-stick or heavy bottomed kadai on a medium-low heat.
  2. Add the whole wheat flour and stir well to combine.
  3. Stir continuously and roast flour over medium heat till it changes color and turns golden brown.
  4. At this point roasted wheat flour should smell very aromatic and roasted flour would release the ghee.
  5. Add hot water slowly to the roasted wheat flour. (The wheat flour mixture splutters, so be careful while adding water.)
  6. Keep stirring to make sure that there are no lumps in the mixture. (At this point halwa mixture would turn into lighter shades.)
  7. Keep stirring until the wheat mixture is golden brown again.
  8. Add sugar and stir well to combine.
  9. Keep stirring until halwa loses the ghee again.
  10. Add cardamom powder, chopped almonds, and chopped cashews and mix well.
  11. Cook for 2 more minutes. Halwa is ready to serve.
  12. Remove from heat, and transfer into serving dishes.
  13. Garnish with chopped nuts and serve hot or warm.


  1. Water should be boiling hot for adding to the roasted flour.
  2. Be patient while roasting wheat flour for making halwa, because this halwa is always roasted on medium-low flame, so it takes some time and a little effort. But all the efforts are worth it.
  3. The good amount (loads) of ghee is the key to making the most delicious and authentic halwa. So don?t be afraid of adding ghee to it.
  4. I did not add any raisins aka kishmish to this atte ka halwa, but you can surely add it to this halwa along with almonds and cashews. If you are adding raisins to this halwa, then make sure you soak them in warm water for 10 minutes.
  5. I have only added cashews and almonds to this halwa, but you can also add pistachios to this halwa.
