furthermore, some important tips and recommendations while preparing the aate ka halwa recipe. firstly, the roasting of wheat flour or atta with ghee is very critical. ensure it properly mixed and roasted in a low to medium heat. otherwise, you may get raw smell if under roasted or burnt smell if over roasted. secondly, i have added an equal amount of sugar and ghee to this recipe as followed in the traditional recipe. if it does not match your preference then you can easily lower it as per your taste. lastly, i have added cardamom powder at the end of the recipe for the nice aroma. you can easily extend it by adding dry fruits and raisins.
