Number of Servings: 20


    1 cup of oil
    1 cup of fine semolina
    1 cup of coarse semolina
    3 cups of sugar
    4 cups of water


Put oil in a saucepan to heat. Add the semolina and stir constantly allowing it to brown slightly. In the meantime, put the sugar with the water in another saucepan to boil for 10 minutes. When the semolina has browned, pour in the sugar syrup. Sprinkle liberally with the cinnamon and lower the heat. Continue stirring until the mixture thickens.
The halva is ready when it is easily detached from the saucepan.
Place the halva in a mould and when it has cooled, remove from the mould to a flat dish, sprinkling again with cinnamon.
