Wheat flour Halwa ( Aate ka halwa)


Ingredients

1 cup wheat flour (aata)
1 cup sugar
1 cup ghee (clarified butter)
1 cup water
1/2 cup grated fresh coconut
1 cup of nuts (cashews, almonds, golden raisins)
1 tsp cardamom powder
1 tsp almond powder
2 tbsp Mawa (khoya)(optional)

Preparation

Heat 1tbsp ghee in a heavy bottomed pan on medium flame and fry the dry fruits till golden. Set aside.
In the same pan add the remaining ghee. Once the ghee is warm, add wheat flour and keep stirring on medium flame till the wheat flour turns golden brown and the aroma fills the air. As soon as the flour turns golden, add the water and the sugar together to the flour and simultaneously stir.
Once all the ingredients are nicely mixed, add the nuts,cardamom powder,almond powder, grated coconut (optional)and keep stirring. Once the halwa starts leaving the sides of the pan, turn off the heat and transfer the halwa to a greased plate. If the halwa does not leave the sides add more ghee;) Serve warm like halwa or set to cool, cut to pieces and serve!!
Mawa can be added after adding water for extra richness.
