recipe notes

few tips for making atta ka halwa recipe:

  1. the sugar solution needs to be hot when you add it to the roasted atta mixture.
  2. there are no thread consistencies formed in the sugar solution. the sugar solution just needs to come to a boil.
  3. use thick bottom kadai so that the atta does not get burnt.
  4. you can use regular sugar or organic sugar. you can even use jaggery powder.
  5. if you want to add kishmish (raisins) then add at the very end when the halwa is almost done.
  6. instead of cashews you can also add almonds in the halwa. you will need to fry the almonds just like we have fried cashews.
  7. if you want to add pista (pistachio), then add them where you have added fried cashews in halwa mixture. no need to fry pista, they can be added directly.
  8. keep both the pan on two burners simultaneously. so that once the flour is roasted, the sugar solution is also hot.
  9. roast the atta on a low to medium-low flame.
