|DK Date Maamool|
Maamool is one of Abaric Sweets' best creations. It comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and flavours. Maamool is most commonly served on occasions like Eid, Easter & Christmas. But nowadays you can find Maamool all year long in speciality Sweet Shops. Maamool is traditionally made of Samolina & fat (Samneh) making up a dough that is then filled with a variety of fillings (most common: Dates, Pistachios or Walnuts filling). The fillings are what give maamool its over all flavour. Go for the best quality ingredients when making Maamool as that makes a huge difference to the flavour.
Since Eid is approaching, and making Maamool requires some time and preperation, I am posting the recipes here for you, so you can give it a go and try making yor own Maamool this year. As with everything, practice makes perfect, and making Mamool might require a little bit of practice. So give yourself some time to practice and make paerfect :)
2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup icing sugar
1tbsp vanilla powder
1 tbsp Ground Mistka
1 tspof ground fennel seeds
1 tsp of ground Anis
* Mahlab, Mahleb, or Mahlepi, is an aromatic spice made from the seeds of the St Lucie Cherry (Prunus mahaleb). The cherry stones are cracked to extract the seed kernel, which is about 5 mm diameter, soft and chewy on extraction, but ground to a powder before use.
In a large container, place all dry ingredients and mix well. Add fats and rub dry ingredients with the added fats like you would in preparing bread dough (simply grab a handful and rub your palms together, rubbing what you grabbed together) repeat rubbing, till all are well incorporated. Leave to set from 12 - 24 hours (the longer it sits, the better the Samolina is).
