Arabic sweets in Dubai1 Comments 24 July 2012
Atlantis’s Ramadan tent is hosting iftar and suhoor buffets that feature several traditional desserts, including umm ali, one of the most famous Egyptian puddings. The name translates as ‘mother of Ali’: this warm treat, similar to English bread-and-butter pudding, is made with puff pastry, cream, nuts and dried fruit. Another dish introduced at the Asateer tent especially for Ramadan is kellaj, historically eaten as a dessert at iftar meals during Ramadan. It’s made by filling pastry with cream and topping it with syrup. Also on offer is katayef with walnuts. Popular in the Middle East, and served during Ramadan, it’s a simple dough made with milk, stuffed with walnuts, pistachios and sugar.
Dhs175 (iftar buffet). Daily 6.30pm-8pm. Atlantis The Palm, Palm Jumeirah (04 426 2626).
