Atte ka Halwa

Simple and easy to make dessert recipe using minimal ingredients...
ATTE KA HALWA (Wheat flour halwa)
Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 1/2 cup
Water - 2 cups
Roasted cashews (in ghee) - a few
Roasted raisins(optional) - a few
1. Heat ghee in a thick-bottomed pan. 
2. Simultaneously mix together sugar and water in a thick saucepan and bring to a boil on medium heat. Allow sugar to dissolve. We do not need any string consistency here. Once it comes to a boil, lower flame a little and let simmer.
3. Meanwhile, to the ghee, add the wheat flour and roast well. Keep stirring till the flour lets out a roasted aroma and starts to turn golden brown. 
4. Continue stirring till ghee starts to separate and it becomes a pasty mix.
5. Once the sugar syrup starts to bubble, carefully and gradually add it to the roasted flour, stirring alongside to ensure no lumps. 
6. Keep stirring till all the water is absorbed by the flour and it comes together and starts leaving the sides of the pan.
Remove and serve hot (or warm) garnished with roasted cashews or other dry fruits of choice.
