One of the pitfalls of fasting in Dhaka is that too often the benefits of fasting are undone by the intake of unhealthy fried food during iftar. This Ramadan, Cookups brings you quick and easy recipes to make breaking your fast a healthy, refreshing experience

Kunafa

Ingredients

  • Laccha Shemai  – 500 g
  • Mozzarella Cheese  – 6 tbps
  • Cheddar Cream Cheese  – 4 tbps
  • Fresh Cream – 200 g
  • Condensed Milk – 400 g
  • Full Cream Liquid Milk – 1 litre
  • Corn Flour – 4 tbps
  • Ghee – 3 tbps
  • Sugar – 3/4 cup
  • Powder Milk – 4 tbps
  • Pistachios (crushed) – 50 g
  • Almond – 50 g

 Method

1.    In a thick pan, combine all of the milk, cream, condensed milk, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cream cheese and corn flour. Mix it thoroughly and boil until the texture turns thick and it appears glossy.

2.    In another pan, fry the laccha shemai with ghee and sugar syrup and rose flavour. Fry it for 5 minutes and then mix in the powdered milk.

3.    Now, we require a bowl for the kunafa to set. Pour in the hot laccha shemai and press it down, flattening the top. Pour the hot and thick cream on top of this layer and use a spatula to flatten the top. Then again, place another layer of laccha shemai on top of the cream cheese mixture. Bake for 30 minutes in the oven. Garnish with crushed pistachios and almonds before serving.
