A delicious Palestinian dessert that everyone will love. Shredded filo pastry is blended with clarified butter, pressed into a tin, topped with a layer of creamy sweet cheese, baked and then drenched in a rose water syrup. The cheese filling is traditionally made from Nabulsi cheese that is desalted. The ricotta-mozzarella mix is a great substitute.
Also known as kataifi, this can be found in Greek or Middle Eastern speciality shops or online.

Its great , just make sure you use the shredded dough n then shread it in small grain size .i made a mistake by using the regular dough n shredding it, though the taste was awesome ,the texture was completly messed up. - 23 May 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
