Atte ka halwa step-by-step recipe with photos.
Atte ka halwa or wheat flour pudding is a famous north Indian dessert that is given as prasad in gurudwaras, also called karah prasad. In fact, I tasted this divine sweet dish first time in a gurudwara here in Melbourne six years ago when I visited a gurudwara for the first time. I loved it so much I went and stood in the queue for a second helping. And I do it even now every time I go to the gurudwara.
This dish is made with three main ingredients – wheat flour, ghee, and sugar. And of course, with lots of love, making this one of the most delicious desserts. I don’t add any dry fruits or nuts to it – it tastes best without any frills. Do try this rich and divine dessert at home.
