If you’re diabetic or looking for a fat-free dessert, try my Sugar-Free & Low Fat Atta Halwa recipe. It’s very quick and easy to make. It takes less than 15 minutes to make from beginning to end. Since it’s made from atta (whole wheat flour), it’s actually naturally healthy. It’s rich in fibre and high in protein, which is quite unusual for a sweet dessert!
So how do I make Atta Halwa sugar-free and low fat? It’s actually quite simple! I use only 1 tablespoon of ghee, compared to at least 1/2 cup used in the traditional recipe. That cuts down the fat considerably without compromising too much on the richness. Another trick I do is to dry toast the nuts. I’ve used cashews and almonds but you can use any nuts you like. Dry toasting releases the essential oils and the nutty flavours without adding additional fat. Traditionally, the nuts are cooked in ghee so this is a great way to achieve a similar flavour without the fat. Lastly, I’m using sugar-free sweetener as my sugar substitute. Not only does it not contain sugar, but it’s also extremely low in calories. So there you go! This is a healthy yet delicious Atta Halwa recipe.
My Sugar-Free & Low Fat Atta Halwa recipe does not use milk but it does use ghee so if you are vegan or lactose-intolerant, you can substitute it with grapeseed oil or even coconut oil. If you want to try different flavours, I suggest adding saffron or raisins.
