Five Delicious Ways to Eat Kunafa

Kunafa is the dessert that we indulge in throughout the month of Ramadan. However, from time to time we tend to get bored of eating it in the same way over and over again. Which is why we decided to tell you about five delicious to eat Kunafa this Ramadan.


1. Mini Kunafa with Nutella

What you will need:

1 1/2 kilo Kunafa

5 tablespoons of butter

A jar of Nutella chocolate

1 tsp of sugar

Syrup for the Kunafa

Steps to make Kunafa with Nutella:

1. Cut the raw kunafa and mix it with the butter and sugar.

2. You will need a cupcake baking tray. Fill each cup holder with the raw kunafa.

3. Place the cupcake tray in the oven, just until the kunafa has turned into a golden crispy color.

4. Using a teaspoon, pour some kunafa syrup into each cup holder then leave the kunafa to cool off. 

5. Remove the kunafa from the cupcake tray. Make a kunafa Nutella sandwich by placing a spoonful of Nutella between every two pieces on kunafa.


2. Kunafa Cups with Mango and Cream

What you will need: 

1/2 kilo kunafa

1/2 kilo mangos

1 tsp of sugar

2 packs of heavy cream

2 tablespoons of condensed milk

5 tablespoons of butter

2 cups of kunafa syrup

Steps to make Kunafa cups with mangos and cream: 

1. Cut the raw kunafa and add the butter and sugar to it. Mix them well together, then place them on a tray. 

2. Place the tray in the oven. Every few minutes, take out the tray and cursh the kunafa into smaller pieces.

3. Once the kunafa is done, pour the kunafa syrup over and leave it to cool down.

4. Add the condensed milk to the cream, and whisk well. Next, chop the mangos into small pieces.

5. Divide the crushed kunafa pieces and place them in small cups.

6. Next add a layer of cream onto the kunafa and top it off with pieces of mangos. 


3. Kunafa with cheese

What you will need:

1/2 kilo kunafa

2 kilos of ricotta cheese

2 tsp of sugar

2 tsp of orange blossom water

1/2 cup of ghee

Steps to make kunafa with cheese:

1. Butter up a tray with the ghee and place half the kunafa in it.

2. Mix the cheese with the sugar and orange blossom water. Spread out this mixture on the kunafa creating a nice thin layer of cheese on the first layer of kunafa.

3. Next, place a second layer of kunafa on the cheese. Just make sure to press down so you can flatten it as much as you can. 

4. Place the kunafa in the oven until you see the top turn into a golden color.

5. Remove the kunafa from the oven, flip it on the other side, and place it back in. That way, both sides will have a golden color.

6. Lastly, pour the syrup over the kunafa once it is done and leave it to cool down before eating. 


4. Kunafa Cones with Mixed Nuts

1/2 kilo kunafa

3/4 cup of heavy cream 

2 1/2 cup of milk

2. Next, you will need pieces of foil, to make mock cones. Twist the foil into the shape of a cone you would like. 

3. Wrap the kunafa around the foil and place them in the tray. Place the tray in the oven for the kunafa to get crispy and turn a golden color. Once you remove the kunafa from the oven, remove the foil and pour the syrup on to it.

4. Now it is time to prepare the cream. Boil the milk, then add the lemon to it and stir until the milk becomes creamy, then leave it to cool down.
