HOW TO PREPARE Othmaliye Bil-Kishta and Strawberry Recipe

Cover the bottom of a round 25cm baking tin with half the quantity of othmaliye dough. Pour ½ quantity of melted ghee over the dough (reserve the remaining half of melted ghee) and bake in a 200˚C preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until dough is golden brown in color. Remove from the oven and carefully take the crusted dough out and place it on a flat platter.

In the same baking tin, cover the bottom with the rest of the dough and pour the remaining melted ghee and bake again in the oven in the same way. Remove and place on a separate flat platter.

Meanwhile, add NESTLÉ Cream, milk and corn flour to a large saucepan, bring to boil with constant stirring then simmer for 1-2 minutes or until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and stir with orange blossom water. Allow to cool at room temperature. (Cover with cling film to avoid the top drying up).

Stir the cooled cream well until very smooth. Spread the cream mixture over the first part of the baked dough. Arrange sliced strawberries on top of the cream then place the second part of the baked dough on top.

Slice and serve with the sugar syrup.
