Extra, I put it in the cookbook. Ask Azat where it is, or look for "karmir plaf".

Right here:

Congratulations! The site looks great, and the recipes are great. I think it's a great idea, especially for someone like me who is trying learn some of the old Armenian recipes. Thanks to everyone who helped out with the site. Sorry, I can't contribute to the list, but believe me I'll be refering to these recipes all the time.

Dear Dianjan(are you related to Mosjan by any chance? you know DianJan-MosJan)

As a forum cookbook rule it is mandatory to invite Maral, Nairi, Extra, Anileve, Movses, Edward, Sip, Harut, and I to dinner any time you use one of our recipes. So what time should we be there tonight?

Dear Azat,
No I'm not related to MosJan, it's just our names sound a like smile.gif
Everyone's welcome to dinner, let me know when you can make it? I have to warn you though, I'm just learning how to cook, so I still have a long way to go. smile.gif

1 cup cream of wheat
1 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1 stick butter

Put the cream of wheat in a pot by itself with nothing else over the stove. Let it fry until it turns pink.

In a separate container mix the milk, sugar, and butter and bring to a boil. This is the hot syrup.

Then take this hot syrup and pour it over the pink cream of wheat. Then start mixing over very low flame. Keep mixing until all the syrup is sucked in. Then turn off the stove and let it rest.

Once it has rested and cooled to warm and risen a little more, mix it one more time to make it fluffy. Then you are done. Put cinnamon on it if you wish or other stuff.





You forgot the pine nuts. Put the pine nuts in the pot first, stir them constantly and make sure they are pink then add the cream of wheat and follow the rest.

Bloody hell, I gave you the easiest recipe to make it. With your cooking skills, you should be able to make something excellent out of it! So no more complaining! It's the easiest dish ever!!!!!!!! Especially if you know how to make rice... Okay that was bad... Mine turns out bad half the time (not enough water, too much water, not enough salt, too much salt, burnt underneath, that sort of thing).

Here we go Maral jan

1 cup of white flour.
Pinch of salt
1 stick of butter
1/2+ cup of sugar
small amount of granulated/powder sugar

Slowly roast the flour in a medium size skillet. Add the pinch of salt. Bring the flower to a medium brown color.(the whole house would stink bu this time.

Start adding the butter at this time(when the flour is brown already. Divide the stick to 8 parts and ad one part at a time and mix. You will get a paste. mix constantly so that you do not get any lumps in it.

Right after the butter add the sugar to taste. Minimum 1/2 cup.

spread the mixture in a flat plate to cool. but before it is completely cool cut the halva into diamond serving sizes.

Serve when cool. sprinkle some powder sugar on top prior to serving.

Maral jan please do not invite me to eat this stuff.
