Gur aur Atte ka Halwa or Jaggery and Wholewheat Flour halwa is a tasty, filling sweet dish that is traditional Indian and a staple in north Indian homes. Here is how to make Gur Atta Halwa.
Gur Aur Aate Ka Halwa, or Jaggery and Wholewheat Flour is a tasty, filling sweet dish that is traditional Indian and a staple in most homes. Originally from Punjab, this dessert is thick in consistency, healthy and nutritious and combines jaggery and wheat wonderfully.
It was a regular breakfast in our home during winters while we were growing up. Ghee and jaggery gives body the required warmth necessary to sail through the winter months in Northern India and hence this Halwa is definitely a must make during the winter season.
Wheat is often considered only as an ingredient for preparing chapattis, rotis and naans, and therefore this dessert showcases a wonderful way to prepare this versatile grain. You can make this dessert for festivals too. It is easy to make and can be refrigerated for 3-4 days. Just re heat in a microwave and you are good to go.
