It is impossible to do the Osmallieh pastry at home since that we will be needing special equipments. It is better if we buy it fresh.
1 Split the pastry into two parts and spread the first part at the bottom of a pan that has high edges (30cm width).Cover with oil and fry until it gets a golden color.
2 Take out and filter of oil and put it on a carton piece that has the same diameter.
3 Do the same thing with the second part of the pastry.
4 When it is done take one of the pieces and put in a serving plate and cover with walnut or fresh Kushta (Arabic cream).
5 Put the second piece on top.
6 Spread the Syrup to cover all the parts.Spread on top small hills of Kushta evenly, and on top of each hill put some lemmon jam and minced pistachio.
7 Serve hot or keep in the refrigerator for one day only.
Enjoy the Osmallieh
