History of Flour Halva

Flour halva is a famous Turkish dessert, the main ingredients of which are flour, milk, butter and sugar, which is especially made on holidays, oil lamps and Thursday nights.

Why is it done?

Sometimes it is done in order to tell about joys and to share with neighbors and loved ones. It is a sociological phenomenon before it becomes a taste that delights the palate in Turkish cuisine. It is actually a matter of sharing, helping and commemorating the origin. It is obtained very cheaply, but its place in Turkish society is spiritually strong and a value that will not disappear. Halva, which is widely used in Ottoman cuisine, sometimes sweetens the palate with pine nuts. As with water or milk, it can also be applied with a softer consistency by changing the main ingredient, butter, only with oil.
