Atte ka halwa is not a conventional sweet dessert if you compare it with the other types of Halwa that are popular.
Everybody has heard about the famous Sooji (Semolina) Halwa and everybody knows that it is an integral part of most Indian festivals. Recall the Sooji Halwa distributed as prasad at Gurudwara or at Navratra festivals and immediately you will feel the craving for it!
There is small history attached with it me making this atte ka halwa. Last year, we visited Sweden at Diwali time and we were looking desperately for Suji/Semolina. But, unfortunately could not find it due to everything written in swedish on the packets. Luckily, we had some Wheat flour with us and it was then that we decided to make Atte ka halwa. So, we celebrated our Diwali pooja with Atte ka halwa instead of Sooji halwa.
I thought that it would be great to share it with others too on inHouseRecipes and hence got it recorded.
