Un Helva (Flour Helva)

Okay, one day, my husband mentioned about un helva, and how much he loved it. I honestly never tried un helva in my life, and never saw it either. So I flipped a turkish cook book, and thought that it looked good and decided to make it. When my husband came home he loved it, but I was curious if he was just being nice to me..lol..so I brought it to my turkish friend (turkish guru for my turkish cooking), and she told me that it tasted good, but it is not quite the right un helva….lol…that’s what I needed to hear! She said I should’ve cooked it a more until the color becomes caramelized (from the sugar), therefore making it brown instead of pale cream color….

Well, I didn’t do well, making me curious to eat the REAL UN HELVA when I go to Turkey so I can make the right one..lol…but anyways, I’ll still show you what I made so you will know what not to make..hehehe….
