ABOUT Atte ka halwa - kada prashad RECIPE

Atte Ka Halwa- Kada Prasad is a dense pudding made with whole wheat flour and clarified butter. I have made sooji ka halwa n number of times but never tried this Atte Ka Halwa at home except for Gurudwaras.  So one fine day I saw a video of one of my favorite chef ( none other than Kunal Kapur) making this attey ka halwa and  I immediately made my mind to try this.

Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 1 cups whole wheat flour (gehu ka atta)
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 3 cups water
  4. 1 cup ghee ( clarified butter)
  5. Few nuts of your choice, finely chopped (optional)


  1. Take a pan, add water and sugar in it and bring to a boil.
  2. Take another pan and melt ghee in it. Once the ghee is melted, add flour and roast it on the medium-low flame, till it turns brown in color and a sweet aroma is released. Keep stirring continuously otherwise the atta may burn. It should take good 8-10  minutes.
  3. Once the flour has roasted well and achieved the dark brown color add sugar syrup to the atta mixture and combine well. Keep stirring continuously while adding the syrup so that no lumps are formed.
  4. Keep stirring the halwa till it thickens and become dense into a semi-solid, gooey form. The test of doneness of halwa is when it leaves the side of the pan.
  5. Serve this Punjabi halwa hot. You can garnish it with chopped nuts.
