Halvas Politikos


1 cup olive oil
2 cup semolina
3 cup sugar
4 cup water
1 cinnamon, powdered

Dissolve the sugar in the water and bring it to a boil. At the same
time, brown the semolina in the oil on high heat, stirring

When the semolina has taken a golden brown colour, add the syrup into
it (taking care not to burn your hands), turn down the heat and keep
stirring until you get a kind of thick porridge. Pour into any kind
of mold you can think of (a cake-mold is perfect for the job), and
let it cool.

Unmold into a platter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Slice it using a wet
knife, serve, and watch your weight go sky high!


* A Greek dessert with semolina -- This is a traditional greek
dessert that is extremely about tasty, and as easy to make as
1-2-3-4. Tasty. Yield: fills a cake-mold.

* You should be very careful pouring the syrup into the browned
semolina, as it is extremely hot, and pouring water on it causes an
eruption of scaldingly hot steam.

* You should not put this dessert in the refrigerator. It can keep
for a few days outside the refrigerator, assuming you can gather
enough will power not to eat it all at once. Some oil will start to
drain off after a day or so, but this is to be expected. Just make
sure you don t leave the dessert on your favourite tablecloth!

* The recipe doubles, halves etc. nicely as long as you keep the
proportion of the ingredients.

* I have seen variations on this dessert using any kind of fat
imaginable, ranging from cooking fat to olive oil or butter, though
I ve only tried it with olive oil.

: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 15-20 minutes.
: Precision: Measure the ingredients, except for the sugar which you
can adjust to taste.
