Halva is a tasty dessert. To prepare it, heat oil in a frying pan until it
is hot. Add flour, reduce heat and stir frequently until the mix changes
colour to golden, thickens and becomes fragrant.
Add sugar to one glass of water and bring to a boil. Add saffron
and rosewater and stir. Let flour cool slightly, then add the mix
and stir well. If the mix is not thick, heat for 1-2 minutes but
not longer. Serve with crushed pistachio and almond sprinkled on top.
