Busy Afternoon Making Ramadan Sweets - Walnut Katiyaf

An impressive looking and yummy tasting Arabic sweet that is so easy to make.

Walnut Katiyaf

1. Buy ready-made mini pancakes from a supermarket - just about every Co-op and supermarket has them during Ramadan they usually start making them fresh from 2pm onwards.

2. Make some sugar syrup - 1 cup water to 1 cup sugar add a cinnamon stick, 1 piece of clove, 2 cracked cardamom pods, pinch of saffron and boil until syrupy approx 15 mins. Add 1 tsp rose water when cooler.

3. Chop walnuts (or pistachios, and/or an assortment of nuts and some raisins too) add a 1 tsp of cinnamon powder mix, add 3 tbs honey mix well. Approx 1.5 cups of chopped nuts for 1 packet of pancakes. 

4. Place a little of the nut mixture inside the pancake, fold and pinch securely closed.

5. Heat corn oil and deep fry for a few minutes, drain in a colander, dip in syrup drain in another colander. 

Takes less than 25 mins to prep and make the above amount.

Sprinkle with powder sugar and top with any remaining nuts. Voila!

Happy Ramadan.
