Halva is a traditional Middle Eastern sweet or after-dinner treat made from ground sesame seeds, nuts and honey. Here it adds a new dimension to creamy vanilla ice cream.
Prepare the figs ahead and heat when required.
Use the leftover egg whites for making meringues, or freeze in 2 batches in airtight containers and keep for up to 1 month. For rose meringues, whisk the whites until firm and add a drop or two of rose water.
Use 2 x 250g tubs Mezap Halva with Vanilla instead of the pistachio version, if you prefer.
