Kunefe - recipe (including photos)

  • 350 grams of mozzarella
  • 220 grams of kadayif dough (we had some "vermicelli" pasta)
  • 90 grams of butter
  • 2 spoons with fresh cream

For the syrup:
  • 120 milliliters of water
  • 100 grams of sugar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • crushed pistachio

First make the syrup: in a pan boil the water with the sugar for a few minutes until the sugar is melted, then add the lemon juice and let it simmer at slow fire for 10 minutes. Let it cool!

We put the pasta in boiling water and let it there for a minute or two.

Drain the water from the pasta and mix it with the melted butter. Divide the pasta in two parts.

Grease a tray with some butter, then add 1 part of the pasta, then the mozzarella , the fresh cream and finally the remaining pasta.

Let it bake in the preheated oven at 180 Celsius degrees until golden brown.

When ready, take it out from the oven and pour the syrup over the pasta.

Sprinkle it with some crushed pistachio.
