DIRECTIONS

  • Sugar syrup: Put sugar and water in a small saucepan on medium heat.
  • Stir mixture until sugar dissolves.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil and let it boil for about 2 minutes; set aside.
  • Halawa: Put all the halawa ingredient in a medium saucepan and put it on medium heat.
  • Stir the mix non-stop with a wooden spoon (be careful that the mix is easily burned if not stirred continuously) until it becomes light brown in color (like color of caramels).
  • (When the mix color begins to darken, lower the heat as you continue stirring).
  • When the mix is light brown in color, remove from heat, pour the sugar syrup over the halawa mix (the mix will bubble).
  • Wait for about 2-3 seconds and stir the halawa with the spoon to blend well.
  • Pour in individual flat plates or one big plate.
  • Set aside to cool and then serve.
