  1. Turkcelnr, you have to be very precise with molasses quantity. Make sure water with molasses comes to a rolling boil. Don't let the flour burn while cooking it in butter or it wont joint well. For step 5, keep cooking it till it forms a sticky ball. To be honest, I think you went wrong with measuring the molasses well. Its molasses that brings together everything everything together. P.S. Its okay if the halva didn't came it that well the second time. We all blow it once in a while :)...

  2. First time I tried out this recipe, it turned out perfectly I think. However the second time, the halva did not solidify even after refrigeration. It turned out more like a very thick pudding that you had to eat with a spoon. And because the recipe as written here seems a little ambiguous, I am not sure what I did wrong the second time around. Steps 4 and 5 need to be more specific, like how long it takes for the dough to "leave the sides", and 5 should explain a little more about the correct consistency to ensure that the ball of dough will solidify enough to cut and hold after refrigeration.
