Luqaimat

Wonderful Luqaimat dessert recipe. It's part of the Saudi Arabia cuisine.

Ingredients:

for batter:
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 2-2 1/4 cups warm milk
  • 3 tablespoons yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons cornflour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
for syrup:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
Preparation:

For batter :
  • Sift dry ingredients into bowl.
  • Add in yoghurt and milk and mix until combined.
  • Mixture should be of middling texture, not watery and not too thick. Just somewhat thicker than a pancake batter consistency.
  • Leave to rise in a warm place for 1/2 an hour.
  • Heat oil, when hot drop batter in by teaspoonfuls and cook until just golden brown.
  • Drain and then place immediately into syrup and toss to coat.
  • When coated completely remove and place on serving dish. Serve warm.
For Syrup :
  • Boil water and sugar together on low heat without stirring (so that it'll stay clear) until it reaches the point that when it cools on the spoon, it is of a thick sticky consistency.
