Today I decided to try my cousin’s recipe of Qatayef ,a homemade one cause she lives abroad and this typical Ramadan dessert is not available, but my version was to make a big one filled half with cheese and half with walnuts.
ingredients and method:
* 1 cup flour.
*1 cup semolina.
* 1 tablespoon corn flour.
* 1 tsp vanilla.
* 2 tsps baking powder.
* pinch of salt.
* 1 tablespoon sugar.
* 2 1/4 cups warm water.
* Mix all ingredients well in a blender then leave to rise or bubbly.
*heat a nonstick pan till very hot then reduce heat and pour a bit of dough the size you like.
* leave till all dry then remove to cool on a clean cloth.
* stuff and close with sweet cheese or walnuts.
* fry or bake as you wish then dip in syrup.
Dinner tonight was a bit of leftovers a plus a steak sandwich loaf ,which is usual steak sandwich filling ( shredded beef,onions,peppers,mushrooms) spread over a rectangular pizza dough , I added mustard and cheese also. Fold the dough and bake all in a medium heated oven till golden and crispy.
Usual appetizers were mashed fava beans and fatoush.
