Kadha Prashad (Attay ka Halwa)

Attay ka Halwa (Wheat Flour Pudding) is also known Kadha Prashad which we get in Gurudwara..  Whenever I make this halwa, it remind me of my days in India when me and my landlord's daughter used to go to the Gurudwara every Saturday and enjoy the prashad.  Those were the days, when there was no stress nothing.  Reminiscing my childhood from 21 years back..

DSC_3128-1Today was Asthami, which is 8th day of Navratri when we the fast ends and all our princesses are treated like Goddesses.  We make kala chana, halwa & puri.  My mom used to make halwa out of semolina, but after I got married my mother in law used to make the one with atta (wheat).  I started making the wheat one too.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups water
  • 1 stick + 2 tbsp soft unsalted butter

DSC_3122-1You want to roast the flour until you the flour is cooked and you get the lovely aroma.  The color depends on how dark you want after the water is mixed with it.  So roast until the color is one shade darker than what you want it to be.

DSC_3123-1After the flour has reached a desired color, pour the simple syrup into the flour and butter mixture and stir continuously until it thickens.
