  • 400g (14 oz) ripe pitted dates
  • 600g (1 lb 5oz) flour, preferably whole wheat (TESTED WITH AL BAKER CHAKKI FRESH ATTA)
  • 10g (0.3 oz) dry yeast
  • Salt
  • 700ml (24 fl oz) warm water
  • 120g (4 oz) sugar
  • 4 eggs, beaten

Serving Suggestion:

Best eaten with fresh soft cottage cheese (chami), clarified butter (ghee/samen) yoghurt or delicious date honey.
  • We will start by soaking the dates in warm water for at least 30 minutes. After this, blend them in a food processor.
  • Mix the flour, yeast, water, sugar and salt. Then add eggs and the dates. Cover well and let it rest ideally overnight or for at least 1 hour.
  • It is now time to cook the muhalla. To do so, use a non-stick crêpe pan. Grease it lightly and pour a small amount of batter.
  • Rapidly distribute the batter evenly over the pan and let it cook for a couple of minutes. You can now flip it and cook for another minute.
  • Carry on doing the same with the remaining batter.
