Tips to prepare perfect halawat al jeben
Halawat al Jeben is one of the most delectable Arabic sweets among the wide selection of delicious treats. And, it’s perfect to serve during holidays like Ramadan and Eid Al Adha. It’s made of sweet cheese dough rolls stuffed with kashta and crowned with crushed nuts and rose petal jam. Here’s how you can perfect its preparation at home!
Ultra fine semolina
The secret to preparing a smooth halawat al jeben dough is to use sifted super fine semolina. Place the ratio of semolina requested by your recipe in a food processor such as Odacio. Pulse until you get the finest texture, then sift it above the rest of your ingredients.
Mozarella cheese melts fast and has a much more elastic texture than any other type of cheese in addition to being the sweetest. For better results, grate it with the grater attachment of your food processor so the process would be quicker. For a traditional taste, go for Akkawi cheese but make sure you soak and rinse it well with water to get rid of the excess salt.
You can always stuff your halawat al jeben with store-bought kashta, however, we all agree that homemade tastes a thousand times better so follow tips and tricks to prepare the most delicious clotted cream or kashta at home!
