(Arabic: كنافة kunāfah,
Azerbaijani: ریشته ختایی riştə xətayi,
Greek: κανταΐφι kadaïfi/kataïfi,
Hebrew: כנאפה knafeh),
also spelled kunafeh or kunafah is a Middle Eastern cheese pastry soaked in sweet, sugar-based syrup, .The pastry is heated in butter, margarine, palm oil, or traditionally semneh and then spread with soft white cheese, such as string cheese , mozzarella, akkawi or Nabulsi cheese. A thick syrup is poured on the pastry (made of sugar, water, and a few drops of rose water and lemon juice ) during the final minutes of cooking. Often the top layer of pastry is tinted with orange or red food coloring (a modern shortcut, instead of baking it for long periods of time). Crushed pistachios are sprinkled on top as a garnish.
There are two common ways to make kunafah .
1 : using semolina
