How to Cook:

Syrup:

 

  • Put the sugar & water in a pan & boil while constantly stirring. Keep stirring until it thickens. Then, add the orange blossom water, rose water and lemon juice.

 

Dough:

 

  • Put all of the ingredients in a bowl, except the oil and mix well until you obtain loose and soft dough.
  • Cover and let it rest for 4 hours.
  • If the dough is stiff, add more water.

 

Zalabieh:

 

  • In a deep pan, heat the oil. Take one small piece from the dough, stretch it out & fry it. When it is golden, flip it over to the other side. Then strain it, and drop it in the hot syrup.
  • Repeat this procedure until all of the dough is finished.
  • Makes around 35 pieces.
