This is a rich Azerbaijan dessert , made with few ingredients – flour , clarified butter and water with the cinnamon flavor.
This tastes similar to the the wheat flour halwa , we make in India.
In Azerbaijan , it is traditionally given to the mothers after delivering baby and to the patients who underwent surgery , to increase their strength.
It should be served hot , I liked it hot as well as cold.
6 tbs wheat flour
3tbs clarified butter ( Ghee in India )
2 cup of water
4 tbs sugar
Pinch of salt
Pinch of turmeric ( optional )
Pinch of cinnamon powder
Melt the butter in a pan.
Add the flour and roast in the butter till it gives out nice aroma.
The flour absorbs the butter and becomes a smooth paste , add the salt and turmeric.
Cook until the mixture turns golden color , it takes about 10 minutes.
Bring the water to boil and add to the cooking flour.
Cook on simmer for 20 minutes or till the melted butter comes on top.
Mix the sugar to the hot pudding.
Serve hot by sprinkling cinnamon powder.
