tahini (sesame seed paste)
dry farina cereal
1 1/2 cups
blanched almond halves
orange flower water
This dessert was so delicious, one of my friends asked me to make it for his birthday instead of cake! I used more tahini than originally called for (about 1/4 cup instead of 1 tbsp) because I had trouble getting the paste to spread far enough on the bottom of the dish, and I only used about half the syrup in the end. The dessert was deliciously nutty and had a nice moist, slightly grainy texture without being too sticky.
Picky Syrian approved! Orange water is a must for authentic flavor.
