I admit I had some trouble with this recipe but that could be the fault of my oven. The mixture refused to boil and after an hour or more, I just put the Habshi Halwa on the stove and stirred it while frying until it got thick. (and my arms gave up on me.) But the end result was extremely delicious His Royal Highness said, "It's very, very good." Which gets you 5 stars from me!
