Atte ka halwa || kada Prasad || wheat flour halwa

Atte ka Halwa or Kada Prasad is popular North Indian halwa recipe. In Gurudwara aate ka halwa is distributed as naivedyam/ prasad and known as Kada Prasad. However, Atte ka halwa is as popular as any other halwa in our home We often make aata halwa  for breakfast, same as sooji halwa. During any pooja aate ka halwa, poori is distributed as naivedyam at home, temple etc.

To achieve getting perfect aate ka halwa is little tricky but with practice you will get it right. It took me a while to achieve this too, but then my mom thought me the recipe which she is using since last so many years. Where atta is roasted in ghee for kada Prasad she use little more ghee, if you want you can reduced it also but then you have to be very careful  because with less ghee there is a chance that your halwa will turn lumpy, if this happened then atta will not able to roast properly and you will not get perfect halwa..

Kada Prasad is made with four ingredients – whole wheat flour, ghee, sugar and water. The proportion is 1:1:1:3 ratio of wheat flour, ghee, sugar and water respectively. Thus kada Prasad has a different taste then the usual Atta halwa we make at home.
