The 1-2-3-4 recipe

Lydia has been asking if we could make halvas for the last couple of days and today we finally got round to doing it. I call it the 1-2-3-4 recipe as you need,

1 cup of olive oil
2 cups of semolina
3 cups of sugar
4 cups of water
and a tablespoon of cinnamon

Combine the sugar with water and bring it to a boil. Add the cinnamon. At the same time, brown the semolina in the oil on high heat, constantly stirring. When the semolina is a golden brown, add the syrup, turn down heat and keep stirring until you get a kind of thick mixture. Pour into mould.

Now, if I can just get her interested in doing the washing - up, then the day is complete. LOL.
