Aata Halwa / Wheat Flour And Almonds Pudding

Last two weeks when my kiddo was at home each day seemed to be very short, our mornings started late and the day was spent  playing with her, evening also disappeared fast while she enjoyed cycling and I chatted with some friends. But now when her school has resumed and she is away from me for almost 8 hours , it seems like eternity waiting for her. I really miss her so much, the time seems to have stopped, though now I have plenty of time for myself, I really miss being troubled by her all day.

My baby has transformed into this small girl who no longer misses her mom, but enjoys her school and likes to spend time with her new friends. She has joined new school and I had been worried as how she will adjust in new atmosphere, find the way to her classroom in the huge campus and board the right bus, you know how capable we mothers are to burden ourselves with unwanted thoughts. But to my surprise after coming back from school she proudly told me how easily she herself went to class and even explored a little bit of her new campus. It's really surprising as to how independent she has become.

And to celebrate this I made her favourite Aata halwa. She got really happy and I was really very proud of her.


Ingredients:

Whole Wheat Flour (Aata) - 1 Cup
Almonds- 3 Tbsp ( Roughly Chopped)
Clarified Butter (Ghee)- 1/2 Cup
Sugar- 1 Cup
Water- 2 Cups
Cardamom Powder- 1/4 Tsp

Procedure:

  • Combine water and sugar together in a pan. Boil and keep aside.
  • In a heavy bottom skillet add in ghee, once ghee heats up add in whole wheat flour.
  • Roast the flour on a low flame by stirring continuously till the flour turns almost brown, this will take around 20 minutes. Take care to stir continuously else the flour may burn.
  • Now add in almonds and mix nicely.
  • Pour the water and sugar mixture in the flour mix and stir vigorously, so that no lumps are formed. 
  • Add in cardamom powder and mix.
  • Now at this stage the halwa will come together like a ball.
  • Switch off the gas.
Enjoy the halwa / pudding warm.

  29. Tempting Halwa!!! nicely said raji, yeah we moms think too much!! i too was worried as my kiddo started his full-time school this year (till 1:30). but he doesn't care much about it, all he is worried about is whether i m keeping him his snack box without forgetting, he double-checks that before leaving!!!!
