If you ever tasted the Seviyan Ka Muzzafar and called it the gourmet version to the Sheer Khurma, then the one Arab world sweetmeat that you should try is the Kunafa. A beloved Middle Eastern sugar-soaked pastry that goes by many names including Knafeh, Kunafa, Kanafe, Kunefe, it’s one of the few delicacies that once marked the Arab trade route from Gaza to Egypt, but now is a rare find outside the tiny coastal enclave of Palestine. And yet, it remains one of the few things that sets the benchmark of a good sweetmeat maker even today.
