hey, I am here for the first time.. Loved your recipes!!! Will def try this one and let u know how it turned out

Latha said...

Hi Zainab,

I made these today and were really good. I had doubt about the result because the rising time is so little and also is the yeast quantity. But still tried (for half the quantity).. the aroma and taste... i'll make it again for sure. Thanks for such a simple recipe.

Arabic Bites said...

anthony,
Glad the recipe worked for you :)

Ramya's Mane Adige,
Welcome & keep visiting ,if you try the recipe I hope you like it.

Latha,
Great news it worked!
If you make it again & you have doubt about the rising time you can double the time ,because it Depends on the weather, here in Saudi Arabia or Dubai the weather is warm so I don't need long time for rising.
Take Care.

zainab :)
