100 gr warm water
160 gr date dough
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp orange flower water
Keep cooking the same
1 / 11
In a large mixing bowl, add the semolina, salt and melted butter.
Mix well until it resembles wet sand. Gradually add warm water and mix continuously, until the dough is smooth and sticky. Set aside.
On a clean surface, knead the cinnamon and the orange flower water into the date dough.
Roll the date dough into a 1cm-thick sausage and cut in half. Set aside.
On the same clean surface, add the semolina dough. Divide in half, and shape each half into cylinders.
With your thumb, split the cylinder in half but not all the way through. Just until you create a pocket to fit the date sausage.
Once you add the filling to each cylinder, close it by applying just the right amount of pressure. Roll it to get a smooth dough. Cut each cylinder on the diagonal to get 2cm ‘diamonds’.
Heat the oil in a deep pan over medium heat. Fry the ‘diamonds’ in batches, until golden brown on all sides.
Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb the excess oil.
Dip into hot honey.
Place on a cooling rack with a sheet pan underneath to allow the excess to drip off.
