DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the water with the sugar for 10 minutes and keep it warm.
  • Place the oil (but first save approximately 2 fingers from the third glass) in a pot and heat it.
  • Slowly put the flour in the oil and constantly stir with a wooden scoop on a medium temperature until it becomes thick, creamy and gets a golden brown colour.
  • We then slowly add the warm syrup we saved and continue to stir until all the liquids have evaporated.
  • It then becomes a tender halva.
  • Place it in a baking pan and sprinkle on top the sesame, then carve the pie in rhombus shapes and put an almond in each rhomb.
  • Bake in a medium temperature in the oven for approximately an hour.
  • Test with a knife to see if the pie is ready when the dough comes off the sides easily.
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon and some sugar, and serve when it has cooled.
