Energy Boosting Halva

Yield4 Servings

Lavina Sethi prepared this Energy Boosting Halva at our December 8th, 2018 Delicious Desserts cooking class, held at the Science of Spirituality International Meditation Center in Lisle, Illinois.

Energy boosting halva

 2 cups water
 Pinch of saffron
 ½ cup sugar
 1 cup ghee
 1 cup whole wheat flour
 ½ cup date paste
 Pistachios and almond, chopped

Bring water, saffron, and sugar to a boil in a saucepan, stirring constantly. Heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.


Melt ghee in a large saucepan over low heat. Add flour and stir constantly until mixture turns into a golden brown paste (taking care not to burn). Slowly whisk in sugar mixture and date paste. Continue cooking until all the liquid is absorbed. The halva will leave the sides of the pan when done.


Spoon into 4 small bowls. Serve warm, garnished with chopped pistachios and almonds.
