1
Preheat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas mark 6.
To make the syrup:
1
Put all syrup ingredients into a small saucepan and bring slowly to the boil. When the sugar is melted lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes or until the syrup thickens. Take off the boil and leave the spices in for the flavour to infuse.
To make the filling:
1
Mix the three cheeses together in a large bowl and set aside.
2
Put the Kadaif into a large bowl and separate into strands. Add the Lurpak ® butter and massage into the pastry until it is completely covered in the butter. Put half the pastry into the frying pan and then top with the cheese mixture, leaving a 1cm rim around the sides. Top with the remaining pastry.
3
Place the pan on a low heat and cook for 2 minutes just to give the pastry some colour . Moving the pan continuously so the pastry does not catch. Carefully turn over the Knafeh by placing a plate on top of the frying pan and flipping it. Put the Knafeh back into the pan and then cook the other side for 2 minutes.
4
Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until golden and hot.
5
Remove from the oven and pour over the syrup.
6
Top with the pistachios and serve.
