Atta Halwa or whole Wheat Flour Halwa is an easy sweet/dessert that can be made in less than 20 mins. This is a no fail recipe. With just 3 ingredients, this is a quick sweet for sudden cravings or any special occasion. This halwa is smooth, moist & it will just melt in your mouth. My mom makes this when she makes ghee.

March 12, 2018 Paneer Dishes  2 comments

Paneer Tikka is a delicious starter made by arranging paneer & veggies in a skewer and then grilled/baked in an oven or tandoor. I made it in a normal pan on stove top and came out really well. It tasted much better than restaurant ones as u all know it is a very popular starter in any restaurant menu. So nothing can stop u if u dont have an oven. I will try the oven method and update here when possible. Check my Paneer 65 recipe too.

Carrot Halwa is an all time favourite. It is a divine treat when served warm on a winter day! Yumm!! I love it when made with Delhi carrots.
