Kunafa bil jibn (kunafa with cheese)

If you have had kunafa before, you will understand why I say this is one of the most popular and delicious desserts out there! I have previously made kunafa with qashta (cream), which is just as yummy. But there is something about stretchy sweet cheese with a crispy pastry, drenched in sugar syrup that is just tooooo good to be true!

There are different ways to make kunafa, and I have tried to share a non-complicated, straight forward accessible recipe for you. The two main ingredients that you may struggle with to make this recipe is the kataifi pastry (shredded filo dough) and the akkawi cheese. But, to make it super accessible, I researched and found online shops that sell the kataifi pastry, and used the equally delicious akkawi cheese substitute - mozzarella and ricotta, giving you no excuse to not give this a go! Enjoyyyy :)

Lamb karahi

I had the great opportunity to learn how to make a few traditional dishes with my friends mother, a great cook who has been making delicious dishes for years! This is one of the dishes she taught me and I was so excited to recreate it and share it with you. It is very straight forward and so yummy!
