1 cup of milk powder

½ a cup of pistachio, nuts or almonds

Cooking process

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them properly to one piece. Then put it in a sealable dish and leave it to rest in the fridge for a 24 hours. Halawa is mostly eaten as an Egyptian breakfast with Arabian bread.

Tip: Nuts, pistachios or almonds You can add to halawa as you like, depends on your taste or you can skip them at all. Great is also halawa with chocolate.
