    For the dough :-

    1. Preheat your oven at 170 °C.
    2. Take all the ingredients to make the dough in a bowl and mix with your hand and make soft dough. It should neither be soo dry nor so sticky.
    3. In your non stick baking sheet, flatten the prepared dough about 10 inch diameter circle and bake for about 30 minutes. (It doesn’t need to be brown). Then keep aside to cool down completely.
    4. Now break the baked dough roughly and put it in your food processor, and grind it well.
    5. Then pass the powdered dough through a sieve and get even more fine texture. Grind the big chunks again to make it fine, pass them through sieve again until you get very fine textured dough.

    For assembling and baking Kunafa :-

    1. Preheat your oven at 180 °C , grease your muffin tray with butter.
    2. Take the kunafa dough in a bowl, add half cup of milk to it. Dough should hold together when pressing with your hands like wet sand.
    3. Then press and cover the bottom and sides of the greased muffin tin with the prepared dough.Not very thick layer , but it shouldn’t be too thin either.
    4. Add 2 to 3 small cubes of mozzarella cheese, then top it with 2 tea spoon of prepared cream filling and again top it with few cubes of mozzarella cheese again.
    5. On top of that cover with little kunafa dough again.
    6. Brush the top with melted butter.
    7. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until golden color.
    8. Take out from the oven, demould the kunafa and pour the prepared sugar syrup on top of it.

    Tips & Tricks :-

    1. You can prepare dough,cream and syrup in advance.
    2. You can also assemble and freeze the kunafa, just bake before you serve.
    3. Akawi cheese can also be used instead of mozzarella. Ricotta cheese or freshly made cottage cheese can also be used, make sure cottage cheese doesn’t taste more tangy if using it.
    4. You can also make kunafa either with cheese or cream alone, its up to your personal preference.
    5. If you are not a fan of flower fragrance, completely opt out the rose-water and orange blossom water and can also be substitute with vanilla extract. But rose water and orange blossom water gives the authentic taste.
    6. I added mozzarella cheese with and without soaking in water, both the way we liked it.
