Halawet Ahmad

Halawet Admad is traditional dessert make with vermicelli. It is widely popular in the middle eastern countries. Vermicelli can almost be called a staple in the homes of the Middle East. There are so many quick dessert preparations with it. I used crushed pistachios for garnish.

I used condensed milk as a short cut to boiling and reducing the milk. As for the vermicelli we prefer the brown roasted vermicelli and that resulted in a nice crunch in the dessert. If you use the thick vermicelli you will have a soft dessert.

You will need
100 gm pre-roasted vermicelli
200 gm non-fat condensed milk
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp. almond powder
2 tbsp. coconut powder
1 tbsp. pistachios, pounded, for garnish

Heat the butter in a pan and add the vermicelli to it. Roast until fragrant. Add the other ingredients and mix well. Cook for another couple minutes until the mixture comes together. Turn off heat and let it cool. Transfer to molds and chill.

Serve chilled garnished with pistachios.
