Wheat Halwa

Recipe Credit- Vanitha Magazine ( July 1- 15 )

Makes: 1 steel thali ( 22 - 25 pieces )
Preparation & Cooking Time: 1 hour

You will need

1 cup ( 200 g ) Aashirwad Atta ( Whole wheat flour )
50 ml ghee
1 cup ( 200 g ) + 2 tablespoon sugar ( As per Vanitha magazine, they recommends 1/2 cup sugar. But that's not enough ).
1 1/2 cup water
4 teaspoon extra ghee ( for final mixing and greasing )
2 tablespoon chopped cashew nuts or almonds


In a kadai / non - stick pan, heat ghee.

Add Aashirwad atta ( whole wheat flour ) and mix well. Fry on a low heat for 20 minutes. Stir continuously.

Add sugar and water. Mix well. Stir continuously on a low heat for 30 minutes or till the mixture leaves from the side of the pan, there is a slight change in the color and you will get a nice aroma.

Add 2 teaspoon extra ghee and mix well.

In a steel thali, grease 1 teaspoon ghee. Spread halwa mixture evenly and sprinkle 1 teaspoon extra ghee on the top and apply evenly. Decorate with chopped cashew nuts or almond pieces. Keep aside to cool.

Cut the halwa into desired shape and size only after it fully cools to normal temperature.
