Karl Said:recipe on how to make homemade marble halvah?
15 oz (about 400 gr) can tahini
oil drained from tahini plus margarine to make 1 1/2 cups
4 c flour
1 c honey
1/2 c sesame seeds
3 oz melted chocolate
Combine oil and margarine in a 2-qt saucepan and heat until margarine melts. Stir in flour and cook over a low flame, stirring often, until light caramel- colored, add tahini and combine.
In a separate pot, heat honey to the Soft Ball Stage, 235 degrees Fahrenheit (about 112 Celsius) on a candy thermometer. (Soft Ball Stage is defined as 234-240 degrees Fahrenheit--syrup dropped in cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when taken out of water.) Combine honey with flour mixture and add sesame seeds. Mix well.
Pour into greased flat marble or Formica surface and press into 1" (about 2 1/2 cm) thick rectangle with wet knife. Cover with a thin layer of melted chocolate. Cut into bars before halvah is completely cool.
Yields 2 1/2 - 3 lbs (kilo +)

2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup vegetable oil

In a frying pan, brown the flour over low heat, watching constantly, for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

Add the water and reheat, stirring for about 5 minutes, until the halvah thickens. Then cover and simmer slowly for 5 minutes more. Fold in the walnuts.

Makes about 20 squares.
Guy Said:what do i do with a block of marble halvah? are there any good recipes?
We Answered:HALVAH ICE CREAM: this is delicious!
8 ounces marbled halvah, divided
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup sugar, to taste
2 cups heavy cream
Cut the halvah into small cubes. Freeze the halvah cubes until needed.
Prepare the ice cream mixture:
Crumble half the halvah cubes into the work bowl of a food processor. Process the mixture briefly, breaking up the halvah. Add the milk and the sugar. Process until the mixture is smooth and the sugar is all dissolved. Pour in the cream and pulse until just mixed. Do not over process, you want to avoid mixing in air. Chill the mixture until cold, then process according to the ice cream manufacturer's instructions.
Just when the ice cream reaches the proper consistency in the ice cream maker, swirl in the frozen halvah cubes. Freeze the mixture in a freezer until set. Serve plain, or dust with a sprinkling of cinnamon or cocoa powder.
VARIATIONS: Add some coffee to the ice cream mixture and now you got it!
Perry Said:Anyone have an excellent Halvah recipe-I went to google and there are SO MANY variations it just confused me. ?
We Answered:son halwa! I absoloutely love it! I enjoyed it when I went for my holiday to pakistan!
Similar to hard toffee - rich, crunchy and yet chewy.
This nut-embedded sweet is garnished with almonds and pistachios. Made with a blend of wheat flour, almonds and pistachios, sugar and pure butter ghee (clarified butter) it's a real mouth-watering delight.
I buy them in Auburn, Sydney. not sure if you live in sydney but i do and that's where I buy it. The shops quite far from my house cuz i live in chatswood.
