Sudanese Aseeda Honey Dessert Recipe

Ingredients:
3 cups whole-wheat flour
2-3 cups cold water
1 teaspoon sea salt

Aseeda Topping
½ cup melted butter
½ cup honey

Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, add flour, salt and cold water mixing well with a bread hook attachment. You can also mix by hand. Mix until flour and water and fully incorporated.

In a large pot over medium heat, add dough and an additional 1 cup of water and stir well until dough is warm, smooth and firm to the touch 10-15 minutes. There should be no lumps since you used cold water and not hot at the start of the recipe.

Slightly grease a serving plate and place the dough in the middle of the plate forming a ball with smooth sides. Make a deep indentation in the center of the dough by using a large ladle or spoon. Pour melted butter inside the indentation and over the sides, and then pour honey in the same manner.


To eat the aseeda simply pinch a piece of the dough, pop it in your mouth, close your eyes and enjoy.
