Surinder Aunty's Gurudwara Prasad / Atta Halwa

Being from a Sikh family, a visit to the Gurudwara for prayers has been a part of my life. However, for me it has always been about the Prasad. Surprisingly, no matter which Gurudwara you go to, the Prasad is always droolicious. My mum taught me the recipe and it is one of my favorite recipes so far. It's a slight variation to the traditional Prasad recipe that is served at the Gurudwara. I am calling it Surinder Aunty's Prasad recipe!


  •  6 tbsp - plain flour
  • 3 tbsp -sugar
  • 12 tbsp - water
  • 4 tbsp - ghee
  • In a non stick pan, add ghee and plain flour
  • Mix them well so that it becomes a smooth paste. When the flour begins to turn light golden and is fragrant, lower the flame.
Point at which sugar is added
  • Now add sugar and mix in the mixture. Keep the water in a glass or a bowl. Add water slowly to the flour mix. When all the water has been added, mix the vigorously to avoid lumps.

  • You will see that the halwa sticks together and begins to leave the sides. It is ready to be served.

 A lot of people prefer hot halwa. When cold, it tastes as heavenly!

Go ahead, try it at home and let us know if it made you drool!


You may keep the measurement for flour, sugar, ghee as same and double the water.
