- 3 Cup Water
- 1 Cup Sugar

Step By Step Instructions With Photos For Atte Ka Halwa Recipe
Put the ghee in a pan and set the flame to medium.
Add whole wheat flour to the ghee.
Incorporate the flour into the ghee completely and keep stirring continuously. Make sure to not cook it on a high heat setting.
It needs to be cooked till the color of the flour starts changing to golden brown and you are able to smell the aroma of roasted wheat. It will also begin to release ghee.
Now turn the heat to high and add 3 cups of water. The water gets absorbed by the flour in just a few seconds.
Stir vigorously to ensure that no lumps are formed in the process.
When the water has been absorbed, add 1 cup sugar.
Mix well as the sugar melts due to the heat.
Sprinkle some finely chopped almonds and cashews for garnishing. This can be served both hot or after it has cooled down.
