Atta halwa

Hi folks.....this halwa happens to be a hot favourite with my kids.I  am not calling it kadha prasad...because the basic requirment for something to be called a prasad is that it be offered to god first.Although the recipe is the same...but i'm going to go with halwa..
1. 1 cup atta(whole wheat flour)
2. 1/2 cup ghee(clarified butter)
3. 1 cup sugar
4. 2 cups water
1. In a saucepan put the sugar and water together,heat it ..let it come to a boil ..stir so that the sugar has completely dissolved and put the flame off.
2. In a heavy bottomed pan(i use a kadhai),put the ghee..let it melt..then add the atta and now stir away.You got to keep stirring this or it will stick to the bottom of the pan...keep stirring till the atta turns a nice golden brown....its hard work..i agree....look on the bright side..you're burning calories and you're going to eat the halwa,which is'nt exactly fat free....so stir away.

3. When the atta turns a nice golden brown,add  the sugar syrup..stir like crazy...keep stirring the lumps will go away..i promise.When there are no lumps and the halwa comes together nicely(this happens pretty fast)...get it of the flame ,put in a serving bowl and serve!My kids were standing with spoons ready to dig in...i had to fight them off to the the pics!N'joy.
