For 4-6s people
1 package of Kadaif noodles (available in the Turkish market)
2 pack of round ball mozzarella cheese
1 pack of butter
A handful of roasted pistachios
For the sweet sauce:
2 cup of cold water
2 tbs of Agava or 1 cup of sugar
1 tbs of rose water
Boil all the sweet sauce ingredients in a pot, then cook them for additional 10 minutes on a small heat. Turn the heat off and let it cool naturally.
Separate a bit, by hand, the Kadaif noodles in a mixing bowl.
Melt half of the butter (possible in a microwave) and pour it on the Kadaif noodles.
Mix it well with the hands until all the noodles are socket with butter.
Heat a medium-size frying pan with ¼ pack of butter on medium heat.
When the butter melted, add half of the Kadaif noodles and spread them over the pan equally (the hight should be around 0.7 cm). Tighten them well to the pan.
Slice the mozzarella cheese into round slices of 0,4 cm each) and put them on the noodles in the pan.
Cover the cheese with the remaining half of the Kadaif noodles, spread them over the cheese equally and tighten them.
Check with a fork if the underside of the noodles become brown.
Take out the cooked Kadaif from the pan to a serving plate for 1 minute.
Add the remaining butter to the frying pan until its melting.
Now comes the hard part: Flip the Kadaif into the frying pan and cook it until the bottom of the noodles become brown.
Put the cooked Kadaif in a serving plate
Pour slowly, with a teaspoon the sweet sauce over the Kadaif top
Spread the roasted pistachios over the Kadaif (you can cut them if you wish).
Enjoy it with a fresh meant tea.
