I must have done something wrong, because my dough turned out waaaay too sticky, even after adding more flour. It was impossible to shape the dough into individual little balls. And my yogurt-cheese mixture turned out too runny.

Arabic Bites said...

Hi rasha,
you need to Follow the measurements exactly for both dough & filling,
In fact Oat flour absorbs water and make the dough very soft,but it may
depends on the type of flour you use, because we try all our recipes many time before we post them.
see the video the dough is very soft & the yogurt-cheese mixture not too runny.
feel free to ask if you have any question.
Good luck.

i can't wait to try the dough recipe! i have a silly question, though-- how do you make the cheese fatayer into the boat shape?

Unknown said...

I am in love with you pictures.

I am making the fatayer now. But the dough turned to be sticky. So added more flour but the same problem.

Even though, I used the standard measuring cups, spoon and jag.

Could you show us the cups, spoon you use for measuring?

tslem edich :)

Flat each ball into oval shapes on a floured surface. Place the filling on the dough and leave about 1cm on either side for the crust. Fold the dough in on either side,see the photo here

Next time when you make it don't add too much flour,just enough to make soft dough...
& to avoid getting dry fatayer don't make it too thin,try to make it a bit thicker.
and make sure not bake it too much....
Hope this help...

as I said to sara add just enough flour to make soft dough....
what type of flour did you used?? sometimes it may depends on the type of flour you use....
I'll make sure to add photo of my measuring cups soon...but even if you use any cups you have it will work....
