Halva Recipe
made with fried wheat flour, sugar, saffron, rosewater, pistachios and almonds
Makes 4 Servings

Ingredients
  • wheat flour, 250 grams (0.55 lbs)
  • sugar, 200 grams
  • cooking oil, 200 grams
  • saffron, 1/2 teaspoon
  • rosewater, 1/2 cup

Method

Halva is a tasty dessert. To prepare it, heat oil in a frying pan until it is hot. Add flour, reduce heat and stir frequently until the mix changes colour to golden, thickens and becomes fragrant.

Add sugar to one glass of water and bring to a boil. Add saffron and rosewater and stir. Let flour cool slightly, then add the mix and stir well. If the mix is not thick, heat for 1-2 minutes but not longer. Serve with crushed pistachio and almond sprinkled on top.
