Atta halawa recipe | atte ka sheera recipe North Indian style Wheat flour halwa recipe with full video and step by step pictures.

Atta ka halwa or atta ka sheera is similar to our south Indian kesari . Also called Gehun ka halwa, it is sweet made with whole wheat flour. I have tasted this a few times in my North Indian friend’s house but never tried it at home on my own. Traditionally it is served in Gurudwaras, also called Kada prasad. Today I tried it home and it came out very perfect and tasty. I have adapted the recipe from here. Be it for Navaratri or varalakshmi vratham, this sweet is perfect for any festival at home.

The main key in this recipe is roasting the wheat flour patiently in ghee. If the flour is not roasted well, then the sheera will not turn out well. The raw smell of the wheat flour should go then only the sheera will turn out well.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup Wheat flour
  • ¼ cup Ghee
  • 1 and ¼ cup Water
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • few Cashew nuts

Instructions

  • In a pan slowly melt the ghee in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the cashews to this and keep the flame low.
  • Do not wait for the cashew to get roasted, add the wheat flour. Keep the flame very low and slowly start roasting the flour till it emits a nice aroma.
  • This took 20 minutes for me. Do not lose your patience while roasting this, else you will not get it perfect.
  • While roasting this keep an aeye on it all the time and never keep the flame high.
  • Keep 1 and ¼ cup of water in a saucepan and allow it to boil. When the atta is roasted add the hot water to this. Carefully mix this without any lumps.
  • Add in the sugar now and mix well. Switch off the flame. The halwa will come to right consistency now.
  • Like rava kesari it will be watery after adding sugar.
  • Mix well and cook for 2 minutes. It will come a right consistency.
  • Atte ka halwa or atta ka sheera is ready.
  • You can garnish with some sliced badam too.

Notes

1. Roasting the flour is most important. If not roasted well, it will not a raw smell and won’t taste nice.
2. Also the texture also won’t be perfect.
3. If you happened to get coarsely ground wheat flour, then use it for this halwa. It will be perfect.
4. If the atta is not roasted well it will get lumps after adding water.
5. For me it took 1 and 1/4 cup of water for 1/2 cup of atta. If you want you can add 1/4 cup of water more. It depends on the texture of the atta.
6. You can add 1-2 tblsp more sugar to atta ke sheera, if you want.

.In a pan add ghee and add the cashew nuts.
