1
Start by melting 100 grams of unsalted butter and pour it over 500 grams of shredded Kunafa pastry. Mix it well ensuring every strand is coated with butter.
2
In a round baking tray, add half of the buttered Kunafa pastry and press it down firmly to form a compact layer.
3
Spread 200 grams of mozzarella cheese evenly over the Kunafa layer.
4
Cover the cheese with the remaining Kunafa pastry and press down firmly.
5
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and bake the Kunafa for about 30-40 minutes or until it turns golden brown.
6
While the Kunafa is baking, prepare the sugar syrup. In a pan, add 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water. Bring it to a boil and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Add a few drops of lemon juice and 1 teaspoon of rose water. Stir well and remove from heat.
7
Once the Kunafa is baked, pour the sugar syrup over it while it's still hot. Let it soak for a few minutes.
8
Flip the Kunafa onto a plate and garnish with crushed pistachios. Serve warm.
