Esh asaraya Recipe (Qatari Sweet bread with cream) | Al Rangina Recipe ( Sweetened Buttered dates) ~Qatari cuisine

Qatar dessert Recipes

For today's letter q I chose qatar as we don't have much option for this letter. The cuisine here is not much familiar , the only thing I know about qatar is the airways they have. The cuisine here is much similar to other arab countries and they have  the famous arab recipe like hummus, falafal also popular here. When  researched for recipe for this country I found two delicious desserts again which interested me.  Esh asaraya is an cheese cake dessert which was so very delicious and the second dessert is a simple and quick one with dates. Dates is one of the major food grown in qatar and they make this simple sweet treat which is just super flavorful.Loved both desserts from this country a lot.Am so happy that I have been successfully posting for the mega marathon till now hoping to get all the letters done this time .. Let move on to the recipe..
