Let’s talk about this Qatayef. You will find this dish across the Arab world with slightly different names. In Palestine they call it Qatayef. Sabah kindly invited us into her home to film with her family. This dish is most commonly eaten during Ramadan, but like Sabah said, “have it whenever you want, everyone loves it.”
The semolina pancakes are simple to make and so fluffy with the added yeast and baking soda. The ricotta filling with a touch of cinnamon is a treat to experience and the added orange blossom syrup bring the whole dish to life.
Perhaps a bit more work than a traditional pancake, but you can’t deny they look incredible and if you make these, don’t worry about making too many, there are never leftovers, I can attest to that.
