      Good recipe. Though be warned this took me longer than 30 minutes. Almost 45. I thought it would be quick and easy but didn't realise I'd have to stand there stirring for so long. It took quite some time for the semolina to thicken and I admit I didn't wait until it started pulling away from the pot completely. Otherwise a good dish.

      I used way less sugar and added ground cardamon, raisins (a tasty addition that adds sweetness) and hemp nuts. Very nice.

      I could never give Halva less than 5 stars as it is one of family's favourite desserts. This recipe of katia's is pretty standard, as there's a 1-2-3-4 set measure. 1 cup of oil, 2 cups semolina, 3 cups sugar, 4 cups water. Like me, katia has reduced the sugar, but I go even less - I can go anywhere from 1 3/4 cups to 2 cups, depending on how sweet we want it - never more than 2 cups. It is a wonderful dessert and very economical. When I made it, I packed it into a bundt cake pan to mold it into a pretty shape. Once cool, it slices into lovely pieces. Do not forget a sprinkle of cinnamon at serving.

      This was great for an easy dessert that everyone would eat. Nice and simple. Sweet but not sickly.

      I made this in a six serving size and got 4 of average size. I used just barely over 1TBS of olive oil and 2/3 cup of Splenda, which I will defiantly trim back to 1/2 a cup as it's really too sweet with the amount I used (it ask for 7/8 cup of sugar). All that said, this is very quick, easy and tasty, I used chopped walnuts instead of raisins and a generous 1/2 tsp of cinnamon in place of the 1/3 tsp ask for. The end result is that I have a very nice dessert that is very low in fat and almost sugar free that could also be used for breakfast. The over sweet factor is my personal taste and I'm sure that many folks will like it just as is.*EDIT*-This is NOT too sweet after having set up for awhile. My prior judgement was based on tasting the spoon and pan remains that were still warm and "unmarried".
