Atte Ka Sheera / Atte Ka Halwa

This recipe has been on my bookmark for longest time ever since I had seen it on my friend Thanu’s blog of Thanu’s kitchen. It was such a quick recipe I had thought, bookmarked and totally forgot about it. Until one day I had many guests and wanted to make a quick dessert for dinner menu. Luckily remembered this and tried it. I couldn’t believe the outcome. I just loved the texture and taste of it. Mostly punjabi's do this for prasad. I realized after I tasted it. Made it again for celebrating Navarathri. Visit Thanu's blog here for the original recipe. I haven’t changed much except for the measurements.

Serves: 4 | Prep time: 5 min | Cooking time: 12 to 15 min.
·         Wheat flour - 1 cup
·         Ghee - ½ cup (increase it if you want it richer)
·         Milk - 1 cup
·         Sugar – ½ cup
·         Cardamom - ½ tsp.
·         Raisins and Cashews to garnish and 1 tsp. ghee to fry them.
Method of preparation:
~ In a heavy bottomed pan add ghee and wheat flour. Fry until they both are mixed and nice aroma starts to fill the room. This takes about 5 to 7 minutes.
~ Add warm milk slowly and stir to make sure no lumps are formed.
~ Once they are mixed thoroughly, you can see that the flour is getting cooked, add sugar and cardamom, mix it well and take it out of the heat.
~ In a small pan, heat ghee and fry raisins and cashews. Top them on prepared halwa. Mix well and serve it hot.

~ Try this - Serve this topped with cool vanilla icecream. It's just yummilicious!

Happy Dushera everyone!
