Halva, flour dough
Iranian halva is different from Halva cooked in the Middle East. To prepare this delicacy, we fry the wheat flour over low heat with oil or butter. When the flour is cooked, we add nectar (a mixture of sugar, rose water, saffron, cardamom). Then, we form a compact dough, mold it with the edge of a spoon and decorate with pistachios and almonds. Halva is prepared in various forms in Iran and is often served on religious holidays.
