Halva at home


Halva at home

My mother just loves an oriental delicacy called halva, but when buying in a store, you never know exactly what is included in the composition. Therefore, she, armed with the Internet and cookbooks, began to search for a halva recipe at home. And my curiosity got the better of it and I watched with interest what happened. To my surprise, it turned out to be the most delicious halva we have ever tasted.

  • flour - 320 grams;
  • sugar - 200 grams;
  • water - 125 milliliters;
  • sunflower oil - 160 milliliters.
