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. She uses the same pan in which she makes ghee to make this Atta Halwa, the idea being – ghee sticking to the pan will not go waste. Am wondering myself, how I missed to post this recipe here for so long. Anyways here it is, the humble Wheat Flour Halwa. This is a very good combo with Poori in North India.

Here is the video..


Now to the recipe..


Atta Halwa My Magic Pan


[Preparation Time-5 mins : Cooking Time- 15 mins]

Atta Halwa Ingredients:

  • Wheat Flour – 1/2 cup
  • Sugar – 1/2 cup
  • Ghee – 1/2 cup
  • Water – 1 cup


Atta Halwa My Magic Pan



  • Heat a pan and add ghee. Let it melt completely. Add the whole wheat flour to it. Keep the flame in low-medium.


  • Stir continuously so that there are no lumps & the wheat flour turns aromatic, frothy and brown. Do not burn it. Meanwhile boil 1 cup of water and keep it ready. Add the boiling water followed by sugar to the roasted wheat flour. When u add the water it will become frothy.


  • The whole mixture will thicken quickly. Mix continuously. It will start leaving the pan and become like a whole mass. Finally in a couple of mins the halwa will ooze out ghee. This is the right stage. Switch off.



Thats it! Super quick Atta Halwa ready!

Serve hot or warm


Atta Halwa My Magic Pan



  1. Roasting the wheat flour until the right consistency is the right key to get the halwa tastier. Make sure u do not burn it. It has to be roasted in low flame.
  2. Be careful while adding boiling water to the roasted wheat flour. It will splutter. Make sure to keep the flame in low.
  3. U can add a pinch of cardamom powder finally if u wish. I did not add though.
  4. Sugar was just right, u can add more if u wish.
  5. My mom adds milk instead of water. U can try that version too.
