    Um Safia's Note:

    Al Salooq are delicious, tender little pastries subtly flavoured with cardamom. These cresecent moon shaped delights are the perfect end to a meal, served with tea or coffee & are very popular during Ramadan & Eid celebrations. Unlike many other Arab pastries, Salooq are quick & simple to make. I prefer to use ghee to make these as it adds a gentle sweetness.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sift the flour, baking powder & ground cardamom into a fairly large mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      Add the melted ghee / butter / oil & using a wooden spoon, mix it into the flour intil you have a crumbly mixture. Slowly add the milk & mix until you have a soft dough. Knead the dough until it is smooth.
    3. 3
      Take walnut sized pieces of the dough & with lightly floured hands, roll them into fat sausages & then shape them into moons - you can also form them into slightly flattened rounds & then push your thumb upwards in the centre to make the moon shapes.
    4. 4
      Heat enough of the sunflower oil for deep frying & fry the cresecent moons in batches until they are a golden brown colour.
    5. 5
      Drain well on paper towels & toss them in confectioners sugar. Just before serving, I like to give them another light dusting of sugar (using a sieve for even coverage).
