Atayef are probably the single greatest thing on the face of the earth. I just blogged about them too. Your recipe sounds similar although I think you make them larger.

Thanks Michael! The recipe actually belongs to my sister in law who according to my fiancee is an amazing cook!

Hi Reeshiez,
I made your lamb and Okra stew on Sunday and brought some to my mother and she said it tasted just like my Aunt Seham, which for me was the highest compliment since she is such a wonderful cook. Thank you for posting your mother's recipe, I am so happy to have found it!

Reeshiez said...

Hi Fatima,

I'm glad that you liked my lamb and okra stew! And even more glad that your mom likes it because mother's are always the best judge! Sorry for the late reply to your comment. I hardly ever check the comment section because I figured that no one read my blog. lol
