Arabic Sweets

If you have sweet tooth this post is dedicated to you

I personally love sweets even if iam out,after a stressful day, even though i just go for party I make it a point to have something sweet

 

01. Kunafa

My mouth watering even if I heard this name not a heavy sweet food but the layers, almonds and the taste is heavenly. It’s bit similar to ‘Cheese Danish’ with a sticky soft paneer layer topped  with  semolina pastry and soaked with rose water syrup

02. Mahalabia

A light middle eastern sweet I personally prefer as a dessert after lunch. It’s just like ‘Blancmange’ made of boiled milk and slightly sweetened rose and orange water
