Wheat Flour Halwa/Atta Halwa/Godhumai Maavu Halwa is very simple and easy halwa variety that can be made in very little time. This wheat flour halwa is a very popular and traditional dessert made in North India. Usually food coloring is added to the wheat flour halwa, but I have not added any food coloring, but have added caramelized sugar which has given a beautiful natural color to the halwa.

Heat 2 tbsp of ghee in a heavy bottomed kadai and  fry the cashew nuts until they turn golden brown color. Transfer the cashew nuts to a plate and keep it aside.

Add rest of the ghee to the kadai.

Now add the wheat flour/godhu maavu to the ghee and keep stirring. Cook on low flame.

Fry the wheat flour thoroughly in ghee until it changes color. Roast the flour in low or medium-low flame only, to avoid it from burning.

You will get the aroma of the roasted wheat flour. The wheat flour will turn to golden color and will emit a nutty fragrance.

Meanwhile, boil the water separately in a sauce pan. Let it boil really well, now switch off the stove. Do this simultaneously while you are roasting the wheat flour in ghee.

Now slowly add the boiling water to the wheat flour, the wheat flour will start cooking and absorb the water. Keep stirring continuously.

Add the rest of the water, by continuously stirring the wheat flour. Make sure there are no lumps.

Keep stirring and let the wheat flour cook. Mean while let’s caramelize the sugar. At this stage it will look like porridge.

Caramelizing the Sugar:

Heat 2 tsp of sugar in a pan, within a minute, the sugar will start to caramelize and turn brown in color. Adding the caramelized sugar will give a beautiful natural color to the wheat flour halwa.

Now switch off the stove.

Add the caramelized sugar to the  kadai and stir really well. 

Now add the sugar to the Kadai and keep stirring. Cook only on low flame.

Add the elachi powder/cardamom powder, pinch of salt to the wheat flour mixture and keep mixing.

After some time you will see the bubbles in the wheat flour mixture.

Let it cook well and all the water absorb. The ghee will separate out of halwa and the wheat flour halwa will leave the sides of the kadai.

At this stage add the fried cashew nuts and switch off the stove.

Yes, delicious and super tasty Wheat Flour Halwa is ready to be enjoyed.
