This Persian halva recipe combines rose water, saffron, butter and flour to form a sweet and rich treat that is perfect with tea or coffee.
Substitute 240ml of flavourless vegetable oil for the butter to make a cholesterol-free sweet. Decorate the top of the halva with whole pistachios or almonds or simply sprinkle with chopped nuts.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or 3 kind of flour: Wheat flour 2 cup Rice flour 1 cup Roasted chickpea flour 1 cup - 01 Oct 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
