How to make Atte ka Ksheera
Halwas are traditional desserts which have been popular in the Middle East, South Asia, and Central Asia. Similar desserts exist in other parts of the world as well. One of the first recipes of a “halwa” appears in the 13th-century book Kitab al-Tabikh. However, the 12th century Sanskrit work Mānasollāsa mentions semolina halwas were already popular long before. The flour-based halwa uses ghee and is known to survive spoilage even at room temperature. In Iran, halwa is often served during formal ceremonies such as in funerals.
