World Tour With Kadayif

Kadayif (an oven-baked shredded pastry) is usually thought of as the main ingredient in the dessert known as kanafeh or burma. However, kadayif itself is neither sweet nor salty – it takes on other flavours when syrup is poured over, or when it is baked or deep-fried with other ingredients. He we recreate some dishes from around the world in which it shines.

Kadayif Schnitzel
Ingredients

  • ½ kg dry kadayif
  • 4 loin steaks (320 g)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 glass of plain flour (100 g)
  • ½ tangerine or lemon
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground pepper
  • Salt
  • Olive oil for frying
Preparation
Rub the tenderized meat of your choice with salt and pepper. Oven-dry the kadayif for 5 minutes. Put the flour, beaten egg and kadayif into three separate shallow bowls (large enough to fit the pieces of meat). Heat enough oil to cover the base of a large frying pan (big enough to fry two schnitzels). Fry only two schnitzels at a time; this will ensure the oil stays hot enough to make them crispy. When the schnitzels are fried golden on both sides, take them out and put them on a plate with a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Serve hot, and squeeze over the tangerine or lemon.


CRISPY BANANA
Ingredients
  • 200 g kadayif

  • Nutmeg
  • Honey
  • Mint

Slice each banana into half widthways. Half withways wrapping the pieces with kadayif, put some sunflower oil into a bowl and oil your palms. This way the wrapping process will be easier, and the kadayif will be crispier. Take a piece of kadayif large enough to completely cover the banana about one and a half times, and wrap it around carefully. While wrapping, turn the kadayif inside your palm and gently squeeze. Deep-fry for 5 minutes, then arrange on the serving plate. Finally, garnish the dessert with a drizzle of honey, grated nutmeg and some fresh mint leaves.
