Znoud El sit

Znoud El sit is a a Lebanese sweet-fried phyllo dough, rolled into a cylindrical shell, and stuffed with kushta. It can be decorated with crimson jelly flour, sprinkled with finely crushed pistachio nuts, and topped with milk cream as an option.

  • 10 chips of Baklawa Pastry (20cm)
  • 10 cups of Arabic cream (Kushta)
  • 4 cups of oil for frying
  • 4 cups of Arabic Syrup
  • Take the Baklawa Pastry and cut it into long stripes and 10cm wide.
  • Put each two stripes of the pastry on top of each other and half a stripe on top of the two but in a cross type.
  • Put two teaspoons of Arabic cream (Kushta) on top where the pastry stripes meet.
  • Fold the right and left side of the pastry on top of the Kushta and then roll it lengthwise around the Kushta.
  • Prepare all the pastry the same way then fry them in the oil until they get a golden color.
  • Take them out of the oil and put them in the Syrup after you have decreased the oil on them.
  • Decorate by putting some kushta on the middle top and some minced pistachio.
  • Don,t use the fresh Kushta for this recipe because it doesn't bare the heat and it will be harmful.
