Heat 1/2 cup heat in heavy bottomed pan for few minutes. Add 1 cup whole wheat flour to it.
Mix very well.
Start roasting in low medium flame.
Roast until the wheat flour turns light brown, aromatic & nutty. Lower the flame.
Add 2.5 cups boiling water to the roasted flour and mix very well. Maintain low flame and keep stirring continuously until all the water is absorbed.
Now add sugar and mix well in low heat.
Adding sugar will make the flour mixture a bit thin, so keep stirring in low to medium heat until the sugar dissolves properly. Now you can add little ghee.
Now add cardamom powder, saffron and chopped nuts to aate ka halwa
Mix very well thoroughly. Remove from heat.
Serve wheat halwa warm. You can add more chopped cashews, dry fruits like raisins before serving.
