Halvas is a Greek delicious dessert made from semolina. The tradition says that when a child looses a tooth, usually the first tooth, she or he must throw it to the roof of the house and then eat semolina halva. (I do not know why…) but I remember after that awful experience we waited passionately our mom to cook for us halva! The house smells great and the flavor also yummy!!
  • 1 cup vegetable butter or extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups semolina
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup honey
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks

  1. In a big and deep casserole heat the butter in low heat.
  2. Pour the semolina and keep stirring until golden brown. Be careful not to burn it!.
  3. Meanwhile, in another saucepan, boil the water with sugar, honey and cinnamon.
  4. When it’s boiled, pour it immediately in the semolina and keep stirring until thick (away from the heat).
  5. Use ramekins and pour the halva when it’s still hot.
  6. You can use a big one if you want to impress your guests.
  7. Enjoy!
