First add jaggery and water in a pot and put it on heat to melt. Stir in between.
Meanwhile, heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan on medium heat.
Once ghee is melted, add the coarse whole wheat flour or regular whole wheat flour.
Mix and saute on medium heat for 8-10 minutes or till aromatic and golden.
The jaggery is melted and the water is heated well. Let the pot be on heat.
The flour is nicely roasted and turned golden and aromatic. (If using regular whole wheat flour then it will be roasted quickly (6-7 minutes)so keep an eye on it while roasting).
Gradually add the heated jaggery water. Stir constantly. Be careful as the hot mixture can splutter on you. (I prefer doing this step on low heat).
Add the entire jaggery water. Mix well and stir the mixture starts to thicken for 3-4 minutes on medium heat.
Now cover the kadhai with lid and simmer on low heat for 4-5 minutes.
Open the lid, stir well, the water is nicely absorbed and the mixture is thickened. The atta gur halwa or sheera is ready to serve. (At this stage you can add cardamom powder if you wish and mix ).
Remove the halwa in a serving plate and garnish with nuts and serve or if you are offering for to God then put an basil leaf on it.
Enjoy the Atta Gur Ka Halwa / Ghau Goad No Sheero / Wholewheat Flour Jaggery Sheera warm and serve as prasad. The halwa / sheera can be refrigerated for couple of days and warm in a microwave before serving.
