How to Make Kada Prasad

Step 1 – Roast the Flour

Heat a pan on low to medium heat. Add ghee to the pan and let it melt.

Once the ghee melts, add the whole wheat flour. Roast the flour on low to medium heat.

Step 2 – Cook till Golden brown

Keep stirring, and make sure there are no lumps. Cook until it achieves a golden brown color.

Step 3 – Combine Ingredients

In a separate saucepan, add water. Place the saucepan on the heat and bring the water to a boil.

Next, add sugar to the mixture.

Pour the hot water into the roasted wheat flour, while stirring continuously. Make sure there are no lumps.

Be careful, as it will splutter when you add the hot water. Continue to stir until the mixture thickens.

Step 4 – Cook Until Ghee Separates

Cook the halwa on medium heat until it thickens and leaves the sides of the pan. This will take another 5-10 minutes.

Continue cooking the halwa over low heat. When the ghee begins to separate from the halwa, this shows that the atta halwa has thickened and cooked well.

Step 5 – Add some Crunch

Sprinkle some chopped nuts such as almonds, cashews, and pistachios. Adding nuts is optional.

Step 6 – Serve

Cook till the ghee starts to separate and has that perfect halwa consistency.

Serve the Atta Halwa hot and enjoy the warm, velvety goodness.
