Minu Ye7eb Um Ali?

UA

Um Ali must be the easiest, fastest, simplest dessert ever made! I personally can never get enough Um Ali’s… and this recipe is both fast and gives great results…!

This year my famous “mean” Um Ali was not going to be made in my Kitchen though every one has been asking after her… But i  made one exception, My friend Zabo0o6a showed up a few days back with a tray of Cheesy Herby Puff Pastry Concotion which was so yummy… it can only be repaid with Um Ali… Thanx hon and i hope you like it :***

So if you are an Um Ali lover you can have yours piping hot on the table in a matter of half an hour if you follow these steps precisely!

    Thank you for visiting my humble blog… it makes me happy to have a new fan 😀

    Ok let’s see

    For half a packet of puff pastry -i used low fat ones- i would use 4 cups of skim milk, tiny tiny knob of butter (10-15 g), 1-2 boxes of cream making 1 cup of cream, and about two tea spoons vanilla essence the foster clarks one

    as for the nuts it’s just a mix of what you like, pistachios are a must though, and you can use raisins if u like, if im making it for my siblings and my self i leave out the raisins completly

    Ya salam –> u know it
    3leech intay –> 3leech y3ni on u… intay means you
    Mino im3almich –> Mino who, im3almich/k taught u she/he

    YA salam –> again u know it

    Min Waray –> Min from, waray my back

    So it means who taught you ya salam behind my back haa :p
