Knafeh Dough

Knafeh dough usually comes in three types:
  • khishneh (Arabic خشنه) "rough", consisting of kadaif pastry, which looks like long thin noodle threads.
  • na'ama (Arabic ناعمة) "fine", consisting of small pieces of semolina clustered together.
  • mhayara (ِِArabic محيرة): which is a mixture of both khishneh and naa'ama.

Knafeh Dough Recipe:


  • 3 cups semolina(smeed)
  • 1 cup semne
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • Mix all the ingredients together.
  • Put them all in a tray.

  • When you want to make any recipie,mix the dough first with some butter and put it at the bottom of a tray(30cm) until it cover it very well,press little bit until it sticks,and then continue what you want to do.
