Atta Halwa - Wheat flour halwa - Atta kesari - Simple dessert recipe - Simple Pooja recipes - Simple Festivals recipe - Simple naivedyam recipes - Deepavali recipe - Diwali recipe

I am a big fan of any quick dessert. This is very helpful if any festival comes in a weekday. I like any sweet with wheat flour. This wheat flour halwa is some what similar to Asoka halwa / Moong dhal halwa except this one requires more ghee. Also the roasted wheat flour flavour is really amazing. Do try out this simple dessert

Atta / wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Cashewnuts - 1 tablespoon
Ghee - 1/4 cup
Raisin - 1 teaspoon (Optional)


Heat ghee in a pan. Add Cashew nuts and raisin. Fry till brown in color. Add wheat flour. 

Fry till nice aroma released. Flour will be brown in color.Add 1/2 cup water and cook it. 
Add sugar and mix well. Mix fried raisin, Cardamom powder and cashewnuts. Mix well. Switch it off when the halwa becomes glossy and ghee oozes out and comes together without sticking to the pan
