I have always been amazed by the richess of the different cuisines from all around the globe. When I started cooking, I was tempted to try out new dishes in my kitchen, thereby expanding my knowledge about the world cuisines.

Today, while rummaging through the internet, I came across so many delectable Middle Eastern desserts on a Nestle page. I went ahead with the one which was quick and easy to prepare.

So, here I am sharing with you all a toothsome Middle Eastern dessert, Mugasgas. It is sort of a fried cookie filled with cardamom flavour coupled with Pistachios or Almonds. You can even enjoy it with a drizzle of condensed milk or chocolate sauce over it. It lifts the taste to yet another level.



2 Cups All purpose flour
1 Tablespoon Ground Cardamom
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk
ΒΌ cup Water, warm
Oil for frying
2 Tablespoon Pistachio meal or Almond meal + Some for garnishing


Take a bowl and to it add All purpose flour, Baking Powder, Cardamom, Pistachio meal/Almond meal and mix well.

Add in the Condensed Milk and Water. Mix until dough is smooth.

Leave the dough to rest at room temperature for around 2 hours.

Roll the dough out on a clean surface dusted with flour, cut into triangles and deep fry in oil until golden brown.

Serve at room temperature, with sprinkled pistachio meal or almond meal on top. You can also enjoy it with a drizzle of condensed milk or chocolate sauce on top.
