Qatayef/Kataif/Qata'if or Taş Kadayıf is an Arab dessert generally served during the month of Ramadan. It can be described as a folded pancake, usually filled with cream, walnuts, and cinnamon or pistachios. It is so addictive! Please hold yourself for 3. Ok, 4. You know what? 5 and that's it.

water

600 ml water

Step 5

Heat a pan on medium-high heat. Add butter to the pan, using a paper towel- spread it all over to create a minimal coating layer.

Step 6

Using a ladle pour the batter on the pan. We cook the pancakes on one side. We know they are ready when the top part has almost completely dried out.

Step 7

Remove pancakes from the pan and place in between 2 towels to steam them. Keep them in between the towels for a couple of mins, it will result in soft pancakes that will be much easier to close to Kataif.

Step 8

Working on one Kataif at a time- take one pancake and fold it on itself. Close one side by pinching the pancake on the edges.

Step 9

Fill the pocket that has been created with 1 teaspoon of ground pistachios. Don't put too much filling otherwise it will tear the Kataif. Keep pinching all the way to close the Kataif to a moon shape.

Step 10

Back to the pan- add a nice amount of butter and pan-fry the Kataif on both sides.

Step 11

Remove from the pan and brush with a great amount of syrup.

Step 12

Decorate with ground pistachios on top.
