Halvah with Halloumi Cheese


Ingredients:  (Serves 6)


9 tbsp butter

1 2/3 cups flour

50 g Halloumi Cheese, diced

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

½ lemon, juice and peel off

1-2 Dried Apricots, diced

1-2 Dried Figs, diced




1. Melt butter in a small saucepan.  Add flour and sauté on low heat for 10-15 minutes or until it begins to turn golden brown.

2. Prepare the syrup by boiling sugar, lemon juice and peel; add water for 15-20 minutes.

3. Carefully stir the syrup in to the flour mixture in the other pan.  Use a long-handle spoon to avoid being scalded by the syrup.

5. Stir the cheese into the halvah.

6. Firmly press the halvah into an individual mould or bowl and then turn over onto individual serving dishes.
