Atte ka Halwa

Atte ka halwa is a popular Indian dessert which is quick and really easy to make. While it’s an everyday Indian sweet, it’s also made during festivals and pujas. It has a nutty flavour and can be served both warm and cold. In Northern India, it’s popular during winters with hot pooris and aloo ki sabji.
