A delicious Ramadan treat, like mini pancakes stuffed with Ashta and drizzled with syrup.
Author: Amira


  • 1 cup flour.
  • 1 cup fine semolina
  • 2 Tablespoon granulated sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder.
  • ½ teaspoon instant yeast.
  • ¼ teaspoon salt.
  • cups warm water.
  • 1/4 cup ground pistachios.
  • Optional : simple syrup or honey for drizzling.
  • A batch of Ashta


  • In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients well.
  • Add water and mix until everything is well incorporated, cover and let it rest for 30 minutes.
  • In a skillet set over medium heat, pour 2 tablespoons batter.
  • Cook until the batter has no visible wet spots you will notice bubbles forming on the surface.Do not flip.
  • Complete the batter and cover the cooked Qatayef so it will not get dry.
  • Prepare the Ashta as directed in the above link.
  • Scoop about a teaspoon of the Ashta filling in the middle of the Qatayef.
  • Pinch the edges together sealing them two-thirds of the way. Dip the open side into ground pistachios.
  • Arrange nicely in a serving dish and cover until time to serve.
  • *You can also drizzle some thick simple syrup or honey over the Qatayef.


* I did not need that step as I made my Ashta with sugar.
