Kunafa | Middle Eastern Cheese filled Dessert Pastry
Kunafa – How can Ramadan be complete without making this warm melty cheese filled, crunchy and unique pastry?
I loved Kunafa when I lived in the Middle East. I haven’t been able to make it the same since I came to Singapore, because I couldn’t find the Kataifi Pastry. Well, I found it a long time ago and made it a few times, but I didn’t get the desired effect, from the memory I had. I have changed the recipe a bit from the authentic one, I add a white sauce to the filling along with Mozzarella cheese. This time, it was pretty incredible tasting. My little one couldn’t stop moaning with delight. I must warn you that it is a sinful dessert if you are on a diet! Small Tiny portions are enough!
I also must emphasize that you must not leave that Kataifi pastry in the freezer too long before making this. It looses its freshness and you won’t get the crispy delicious flavor that you are after.
