Gluten Free Un Helvası Recipe
I gave the good news of the gluten-free flour halva recipe in the leblebi cookie recipe. As I said at the time, a recipe that came out while working on leblebi cookies is leblebi (roasted chickpeas) flour halvah. It is almost the same as the flour halva made with flour. Only the leblebi flour halva is easier to make.
As you know, flour is roasted with oil for a long time in flour halva. Because the flour must be cooked. But since the leblebi is already roasted, they do not need to be cooked any longer. For this reason, you do not need to roast the leblebi flour for a long time after adding it to the oil. After mixing it well and making sure that the flour is mixed well with the oil, you can add sugar. Again, after adding the sugar, you should not cook it for a long time. Sugar melts when you cook it for a long time. If the sugar melts, when you add the milk, the sugar freezes and becomes like hard candy. In order to avoid such a problem, after adding sugar, you just need to mix it well with the flour. The sugar will dissolve during the cooking phase after adding the milk.
How To Make Leblebi Flour?
I explained this in the chickpea cookie recipe, but it is worth repeating it for those who have not seen it yet. You can find leblebi in stores where Turkish ingredients are sold or in online shops. You can process leblebi with a food processor and then sift the ground leblebi. You can store the leblebi flour in a sealed jar at room temperature for a long time.
Vegan and Gluten Free Flour Halva
The only animal product used in the recipe is milk. You can make vegan flour halva by using plant based milk instead of milk.
