Atta Ka Halwa

Experiment: Atta ka halwa

Time required preparing this dish: depends on the mood and interest but otherwise 30 mins.

Time N Location of preparation: 13 March 2010, Johannesburg (IPL 3.0 on T.V., Delhi Daredevils V/s Punjab King XI)

Reason: Punjab’s disastrous batting.

Kitchen Setup: 2 cups water, 0.5 cup sugar, 1.5 tbsp. ghee, 1.5 cups atta (wheat flour), crushed almonds and lot of patience.

Note: To be made on conditions, either when you (especially the bachelors) are alone at home or grounded by your beloved or mom or friends for some unimaginable reason and is novice in cooking stuff well beyond imagination.

This one is the easiest and most readily prepared item which does not involve brains at all and one feels like investing some time whereas the ground check is…it’s a shear fritter.

So, dudes & dudette, who do not deny the fact that cooking is actually a rocket science, enjoy this recipe as I take immense pleasure in killing your time both mentally and physically in reading this blog and preparing this dish later on. LOL

Served for: Well, when I finished making it, turned out to be served for 4 but if you want to make it for a bigger gathering, please refer GOOGLE.

Apparatus: a big and a small vessel.


1. Add 2 cup water and half cup sugar in a small vessel and heat it until you get a sugar concentrate.

2. After 10 minutes, flame another vessel and heat 1.5 tbsp. ghee in it.

3. Add 1.5 cup wheat flour into the vessel holding ghee and mix it well.

4. Very important, mix well, till you see atta turns brownish (like I was seeing the target to defend against the Daredevils).

Generally, it takes 12-15 mins. to turn brown. [“Generally” word here is very deceptive, as I’ve prepared this halwa only once in my life but trust me it came out good and was a success]

5. Add the sugar concentrate to the atta vessel and keep blending it till the entire sugar water concentrate mix well with atta.

6. Mix it for 15 mins. And add crushed almonds to it.

It’s ready to serve now.

Please let me know if you try this and how was the experience and what all challenges you faced by adding your valuable comments to this blog.

P.S: will be coming out with more non creative recipes now and then.

Till then, Chao and enjoy the halwa.
