This delicious halva with pistachios has a delicious creamy texture and generous flavour of pistachio. Great on its own or served with ice cream - a tasty dessert or sweat treat at any time. 

Halva originated in Persia (modern day Iran) and is a term applied to numerous kinds of sweets, including the now-familiar sweetened cooked semolina or flour paste.
Most types of halva are relatively dense confections sweetened with sugar or honey. Their textures, however, vary. Sesame-based halva is drier and more crumbly than semolina based halva. 

Halva is a traditional fasting food among Greek Orthodox who traditionally have food restrictions, especially from meat, on Wednesdays and Fridays throughout the year, as well as during Lent. 
It is popular across the Mediterranean and Middle East - including Israel, Iran, Turkey and India. 

Arkan is an Egyptian company supplying foods in the Middle East.
