Bosnian Halva

Friday, April 24, 2020

Ramadan Mubarek friends. My mom made halva yesterday and the house smelled ABSOLUTELY amazing. I asked my mom for the recipe and her answer was "Amm we don't have one, we just make it". COOL mom, how am I gonna learn to make this if you don't have a recipe. So google, thank you for having my back, always! Halva are dense, sweet confections originating in the Middle East but Bosnians have made our own version for years.
What you need:
100 gr margarine
100 gr flour
100 gr sugar
200ml water
30 gr vanilla sugar
Walnuts for decorations. 
How to make it:
In a saucepan melt butter, when butter is completely melted, found in flour.
Stir constantly for about 10 minutes without interruption, you have to be super careful to take care so your halva doesn't burns. 
In a second saucepan, bring water and sugar to boil.
When the flour and butter mixture is done (so when you get a beige color) add to the water mixture into it and fold the mixture well. 
Spoon the mixture on a plate (you can put it fridge to cool down a bit) and decorate
enjoy! This recipe and translation are my mom approved, and ai quote "That sounds correct, but you have to do it for it make sure it works"
