Kunafa Othmaliye

This is a traditional Middle Eastern dessert, where Kunafa dough is deep fried till golden then filled with rich creamy kishta, and drizzled with sugar syrup for sweetness. It’s very tasty, and easy to make, but you need to be extra careful while frying the Kunafa dough.
This is how I prepar it. Try and enjoy.

Kunafa Othmaliye

Notes

Some people fry the Kunafa by placing it in the oven instead; I think it might take longer time then. You may try that way and see how it works. Still you have to be careful while removing the Kunafa out of the oil, so you won't break it, or get burnt with the hot oil.
You can prepare fried kunafa, cooked cream and sugar syrup all in advance, and only assemble when needed to serve.

Dear Yasmen,
Donno really where you can buy the konafah dough! it's one of the things that are difficult to make at home, always bought ready and we use it!! I'll try to find a video that shows how they make it..

Hi Mashzah .. Yea, I buy them ready made, but one time it was not available, cz they said they bring it here in Bahrain only in Ramadan, So after searching, i found out you can use preserved red Cherries, slice them, and use them instead.. it'll do the trick ;-)

I live near an Arabic influenced area in Sydney - so I'm sure I'll be able to locate some Kunafa dough somewhere
