I love Mediterranean desserts like Baklava, Kunafah, Kataifi etc. There was a time when I used to crave for Kunafah, especially after seeing pictures of it on social media. Unfortunately there weren’t any good places to buy them from. Even though I wanted to prepare them at home, getting the Kataifi dough was impossible and I gave up the thought of making at home. Once I happened to see a Turkish video, wherein they were making Kataifi dough using machine. The process looked simple. My next search was for a way to prepare at home. A long search led me to Korena in the Kitchen.

As I was trying out for the first time, decided to halve the recipe. Though the recipe is pretty simple, the process is a bit time consuming. Even though I was pleased with the result, I wanted to make sure I was on the right track. So I went ahead and made Kataifi. I was relieved only when the boys gave their seal of approval. More of Kataifi in the next post 🙂
