How to make Gehun Ka Halwa Recipe | Atte Ka Halwa | Kada Prasad Recipe
To begin making the Gehun Ka Halwa | Atte Ka Halwa | Kada Prasad Recipe, heat the water and sugar in a saucepan, stirring continuously until the sugar dissolves. Turn the heat to low and continue to heat the water until you get wheat flour mixture ready by following the steps that follow.
Heat a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat; melt the one cup of ghee and stir in the wheat flour and roast the mixture on medium heat. Continue to roast until the mixture begins to release a roasted aroma and changes color to a roasted brown; the process will take about 5 to 8 minutes, Ensure you roast the wheat flour in medium heat to avoid the flour from burning.
Keep stirring continuously while it is roasting. When the mixture will begin to resemble like coarse crumbles, turn the heat to low and stir the cardamom powder to the wheat flour mixture.
Slowly start stirring in the prepared hot sugar water to the atte ka mixture. The mixture will start splitting and curdling. Continue stirring until the atte ka halwa / kada prasad thickens, yet feels coarse and crumbly and not like a blob of dough.
Stir continuously for 10-15 minutes on medium heat after the atte ka halwa thickens. You will notice the atte ka halwa comes away from the sides of the pan.
Turn the heat off and let the gehun ka halwa/ atte ka halwa rest covered for about 5 minutes.
In another small tadka pan; heat the 1 tablespoon of ghee on medium heat; add the cashew nuts and roast them until the cashew nuts turn golden brown. Turn off heat and stir this into the gehun ka halwa/ atte ka halwa.
Serve the Gehun ka Halwa/ Atte Ka Halwa/ Kada Prasad during festivals, special occasions, after a delicious weekend lunch or at a party as a dessert with friends and family.
