atta halwa / godhumai halwa

Atta halwa recipe with step-wise pictures. Godhumai halwa is one of the easy halwa recipe that can be prepared for any occasions. It is delicious and just melts in mouth. It requires little effort by continuous stirring but totally worth the effort. I have prepared this halwa in large amount for my relatives but had only a cup of halwa for taking pictures. The quantity mentioned here is for six people so don’t compare with the quantity in pictures as I have prepared for the whole family.

I am sending this recipe as a guest post for my blogger friend Sharmila (happytrio), who has given us a delicious whole wheat oats brownie recipe as guest post before.
