So, what is halolaj?

Halolaj, also known as lard, is a versatile and flavorful fat commonly used in cooking and baking. This ingredient is made from rendered pig fat that has been clarified to remove impurities, resulting in a smooth and creamy texture. Halolaj adds richness and depth to savory dishes like stews and soups, and lends a flaky and tender texture to baked goods such as pie crusts and biscuits. It can be substituted for butter or oil in many recipes, making it a popular choice for those looking to add extra flavor and moisture to their meals.
