Atta halwa recipe is one of the easiest sweet that can be made in a jiffy. This was told by my friend Sangeeta as Atta kesari. I could relate the texture to kesari, so may be it’s named so. I love the south Indian wheat halwa, I recently tried and will be posting soon as well. This north Indian atta halwa is on contrast to it, this takes very less time to prepare where that is time consuming. Both are totally different in texture, taste and flavour. But I liked both. I loved the simplicity in this method and this can be quickly done, which I loved the most. So you can prepare this for your guests visiting for Golu😊.

How to make atta kesari method:
- Measure and keep all the ingredients ready. Heat a non stick pan, add ghee (add cashew nuts and fry till golden *if adding*), followed by flour.
- Keep stirring in low or medium flame to ensure even browning. Roast until the colour changes slightly red and nice aroma rises. Take care not to burn by putting flame in high.
- Add water with salt, keep stirring while you pour. It will become thick and get cooked soon. Add sugar and mix.
- Flame should be in low or medium at all the times. Keep stirring until it turns glossy and ghee oozes out. Takes hardly 2-3 minutes.
- If ghee is less, add more. Do not reduce ghee as while you add water, it may form lumps.
- Reduce sugar as per your need. I am sweet toothed. Salt is optional, but it enhances the sweetness.
- I didn’t add cardamom or nuts as Vj is not a big fan of it.
- I made only 1/2 the quantity as mentioned above just for 2 of us. So perfect for making in a jiffy when you have sudden sweet cravings.
Delicious, rich, atta halwa AKA atta kesari as my friend names it is ready in no time.
