HOW TO PREPARE Shabakiyah Recipe

Combine all the shabakiyah ingredients to make hard dough, and keep aside for 20 minutes.

Divide the dough into 5 or 6 pieces and start sheeting with a wooden roller.

Cut the dough into squares 8 x 8cm each and cut inside each square 4 parallel lines keeping the end without cut; giving the shape of shabakiyah.

Deep fry in oil until golden in color; remove and dip directly in sugar syrup for 6 to 8 minutes. Serve cold.

Bring the sugar and water to boil; add lemon juice and boil until golden in color.
