Katayef recipe

What is the point of this if you are not providing the all important recipe for the batter or the katayef????
Very silly!!

Usually bought ...

In Egypt, katayef itself is never made from dough at home. There are shops that make it and people buy it.

But if you want to make it, it is almost the same as pancake batter. Just make them smaller and thinner, and do not turn them over on the hot plate. The doughy side will be used to fuse the pockets into a half moon shape.
