  • The best halwa recipe!

    :salams

    I guess this thread is random... I've never actually made halwa properly before, and wondered whether anyone has a good recipe that has been tried and tested.

    I don't really want the runny stuff, but the halwa you can cut into blocks.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated, my Dad's been wanting some for a while now and I said I'd make some, I actually went and got the obvious ingredients already.

    :jkk:
    Ya Muqallib al-Quloob, thabbit qalbi 'alaa Deenik
    O' Converter of Hearts, make my heart steadfast upon Thy Way
    We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

            What halwa do you want to make sis....

            Carrot, egg, soji.....or just plain like habshi halwa you can buy??

            Although for the former one you need milk powder and we like to use klim, which you can't buy in the UK.

            You can use nido as a substitute but its not as half as good

            Let me know what one you wanna make and ill flick through my book for ya!!

            إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ

              @ hijab: Will do, insha-Allah. :D

              @ Jenicca: Not sure what habshi halwa is, lol, but I meant the sooji one and the carrot one, though I really want the sooji one. Never tasted egg halwa, I think... :| I'd appreciate any of your recipes. :)


              @ hamza: :jkk:, I'll take a look at those tomorrow.

                        How about making my newly thought of invention called Halwa Parcels:

                        Basically it is miniature sausage shaped fillo pastry parcel which contains halwa blocks with shavings of dates and coarsly chopped pistachio nuts.

                        Sprinkle the light and fluffy pastry with a bit of coca powder and there you have it "Halwa Parcel"

                        A great taste sensation as it is a marriage of different textures and flavours, don't delay try my halwa parcels today.

                          Semolina helva is the most popular one in Turkey :)

                          Here is how we cook it

                          Main:
                          1 cup semolina flour
                          125 ml unsalted butter
                          2 tbsp pine nuts

                          Syrup:
                          1 cup sugar
                          1 cup water
                          1 cup milk

                          Cook the main ingredients on medium-low heat until golden brown in a large pot, constantly stirring. In another pot, mix the syrup ingredients until boiled. Pour the syrup very slowly into the pot with the semolina while stirring with a long wooden spoon. The mixture will be bubbly and will spit so be careful. Stir until the mixture leaves sides of the pot (it will become doughy), this shouldn't take more than a couple minutes.

                          Then place away from heat with the lid on, wait for 5 minutes and put in a bowl, leveled. When cooled, put it on a flat plate upside down.

                            Put one whole anchor butter and 1 cup fine semolina in a pan on medium heat and stir until golden brown (maybe 10-15 mins depending on your cooker)

                            Meanwhile put 1 cup of sugar and 2 cups boiling water in a bowl and stir. Add crushed cardamon to this

                            Add the water/ sugar mixture to the semolina and stir on a medium/ high heat until all the liquid has evaporated and its nice and fluffy (takes about 3-5mins)

                            Add chopped nuts (almonds/ pistachio) raising etc whatever you like ito the halwa. Stick the lid on for a bit and keep on low when you have done this...you will start to see the 'oil' come out on the bottom on the pan and its done :up: enjoy!
                            What does 'freedom' mean?

                            Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
                            Restricted by the sky?

                            Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
                            Not enough river to explore?

                            Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
                            but death for the fish,

                            The sea is wide for the fish
                            but will engulf the bird.

                            We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
                            We can only express our nature as it was created.

                            The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
                            freedom from slavery to other than the One,
                            Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
                            and a horizon that extends to the next life,
                            Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.
