I heard of Kataifi a while ago, but there were always other things to do first, preventing me from making it. Last month, I received a bag of Kadaif noodles as a gift from a friend. So I had to make it, otherwise it would have spoiled and I would have felt sorry. Yes, and now I'm wondering why I haven't tried this before.
It's such a simple dessert, very tasty, interesting and most impressive. Now I tried the simplest option, with whipped cream and milk. There are others to come, I barely started to discover its taste.
From what I understood, Kataifi can be made with very fine homemade noodles, as well. It won't be the exact same thing, but it works when in need. The Turkish noodles are much finer and will result into a smoother and more syrupy pastry. So, if you have an Arab shop around, you know what to look for in there.
