Sohan Asali (Sohan e Asali) or Almond Sesame Brittle is a traditional
Persian candy for Norooz (Iranian New Year), and one of my absolute favorite
Norooz recipes. Happy Persian New Year!
Now I know that this keto sesame candy recipe can be created with
all kinds of flavors running through that delicious toffee.
You could easily use any extract to flavor yours, not just vanilla. I like mine with saffron and cardamom, but there is no limits! If you're using rosewater, it's available in Middle Eastern food shops and in some supermarkets.
You ca also substitute some of the sesame seeds with shredded coconut or silvered almonds. You can also add toppings such as sunflower seeds, pistachios and flakey sea salt.
These Persian keto caramels also make a great gift. Just place in a cute jar or a box, wrapped up with a bit of ribbon and add a tag!
