Sometimes (maybe most of the time) our sweet tooth tingles.

This recipe is popular as halwa in Arabic cuisine.


½ cup whole wheat flour
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup sugar
1 cup water
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom


In a heavy pot, heat the coconut oil, add the flour and toast it. Toast on a medium flame and stir consistently.

Simultaneously, in a separate pan, boil water and the sugar until all the sugar is dissolved. Add the cardamom to it.

Once the flour changes colour (golden), and starts to release a fragrance, slowly add the sugar water and stir consistently. Note that the mixture will become bubbly and thicken up.

Serve hot.
