And today is National Baklava Day. To celebrate, we share a recipe from Greek-American television…
Greek Halva (Χαλβάς σιμιγδαλένιος) is a semolina pudding that is sweetened with syrup and studded with nuts and raisins. Its semisweet, nutty flavour and crumbly, fluffy texture are what make it a uniquely delicious treat.
They’re hot, fluffy and crisp, usually drizzled with honey and cinnamon or chopped walnuts, while in a more modern rendition they’re dipped in luscious melty chocolate. That’s right we are talking about Loukoumades!
