This dessert has two names, Bsaisat or Twaitat.

The idea of Bsaisat / Twaitat is to prepare ‘Ajineh Mwarraqah, then deep fry the dough, and dip the fried ones in sugar syrup.

Let’s make Bsaisat / Twaitat:

Notes and Tips

You can make the dough (‘Ajineh Mwarraqah) in the same day of making this dish, and use the dough fresh and make this dish (a fresh dough is always better) , if you made the dough before and stored it in the freezer so the first thing is to remove the dough from the freezer early in the morning and let it defrost, then use it (please don’t defrost using microwave because the dough will not be good to work with it).

The weight of each piece of the dough is 50 g.

I prepared 30 pieces, the quantity of sugar syrup was perfect for the 30 pieces.

The sugar syrup must be cold because the rule is: cold syrup is added to hot desserts, and hot syrup is added to cold desserts.
