Iranian Dessert: Halva


Ingredients: 4 Servings

250 grams wheat flour

200 grams sugar

200 grams cooking oil

1/2 teaspoon saffron

1/2 cup rosewater

1 tablespoon crushed pistachio

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 color 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.
