An innovative twist to kunafa this Ramadan.

Let’s make kunafa dough little spicy and crunchy this Ramadan.

Servings for 12 cones


Kunafa - half of the pack can make 12 cones

For egg wash

2 eggs

1/4 cup milk

Salt and pepper

Mix these well in a bowl and keep aside

For tahini chicken filling

3 cups cooked and shredded chicken

1-2 teaspoons tahini

1 tablespoon mayonnaise

2 cups chopped vegetables of cucumber, onion, coriander leaves, lettuce, parsley, sweet corn

5 triangle cheese, chopped

Salt and pepper

1 teaspoon tomato ketchup (optional)

1 teaspoon olive oil

Mix all these together to make the filling


Take kunafa dough (strands) and roll it finely on a stainless steel ‘cone’ mould (available in all supermarkets). Little oil should be spread on the cone mould before rolling kunafa dough. Then wash it with the egg-milk mix by a brush. Deep fry it in hot oil. Let it cool for 5 minutes then remove the cone mould. Repeat the same process. Now add the filling with a piping bag. Serve it with some ketchup on top.
