Middle Eastern Sambousek with Garlic Cilantro Aioli Dipping Sauce. One of my BF's fave dish. Nothing like his mama's obviously but might as well -at least- try to make him happy by giving this recipe a try.
If you ask any Middle Eastern Muslim what food comes to his/her mind when he/she hear the word Ramasan, the answer is one of two Qatayef or Knefeh. Qatayef is sold everywhere in Egypt during Ramadan, (Breakfast Baking Sweet)
Sfeeha probably dates back to the fifteenth century and would have appeared in the region of the Beqaa Valley in Eastern Lebanon close to the Syrian border, the capital of which is Baalbek. An Iraqi family named Haidar is at the origin of the recipe.
