Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
Yoghurt bread dough
250g Lahm bi ajine
pomegranate molasses
Labneh

Method

  1. To make the sfiha, dust your work surface and rolling pin with flour, then roll the pastry out as thinly as you can. Cut into 12 rounds, around 10 cm in diameter. Place a spoonful of mixture in the centre of each round. Moisten the edges of the pastry with a little water, then pinch the corners together to form the traditional shape.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C and bake the sfiha for 8–10 minutes. Top each pie with a few drops of pomegranate molasses and a blob of Labneh.
