Recipes I've Shared:
My friend Hamid from Pakistan gave me this recipe. It's made by boiling then mashing the carrots first, rather than shredding them and cooking until soft in butter or margarine. There are many, many versions of Halwa/Halva, from Greece to Lebanon and on into Pakistan and India. Some are made with sesame seed paste, others with carrots, often with different garnishes such as raisens and mixed nuts. No matter the variation, it is treated as a very rich dessert.
Takes great on chicken, low in calories, fat, and sodium. Perfect for a meal for two.
Adapted from a Kraftfoods.com recipe to add more broccoli, broth and mozzarella cheese, and eliminate the grated Parmesan cheese.
