Homemade Halaweh (حلاوه بيتيه).

Hello everybody.

Lots of events today,started with a lovely breakfast gathering with my beautiful friends at Al Narenj restaurant located in Abdoun, highly recommended by the way, delicious food,excellent service and very relaxing atmosphere plus very reasonable price. Food is Middle Eastern and various,we were really full and satisfied. Definitely going back for lunch or dinner soon.

After lunch I decided to try a recipe my dear young cousin ,who’s a newly wed by the way but showing great cooking skills ,posted this afternoon on my page which is homemade halaweh. A product usually bought ready from stores and not a usual at all to do at home, never thought it would be so easy to do,even simple available ingredients.

Well it’s firming up in the fridge right now but I did taste it and it’s awesome, thank you lovely Mouna for the new adventure :)

Ingredients and method:

* 1 cup powdered milk.

* 1 cup powdered sugar.

* 1 cup tahini sauce.

* 1 tsp cardamon.

*1 tsp vanilla.

* some pistachios to garnish.


* Mix sugar,milk,vanilla,cardamon well then add tahini till all mixed,you may need less quantity of tahini so pour it slowly till you get a soft paste.

* press paste in mold or jar and garnish with pistachios then leave to cool in fridge.


That’s it,ready to go !
