Osh-e-bulbul

I am an ardent lover of Arabic sweets. I would go mad over a box of those crunchy whirls filled with nuts and sweetness. Here is my version of the famous and delectable ‘Osh-e-bulbul’, or ‘Bird’s nest’. This sweet has indeed made me popular among friends and relatives. Every time I used to pack this for my hubby’s office for any special occasion, I used to get overwhelming responses and feedback. And there were instances where in I had to make specially for few of his friends on request. And all credit goes to my Aunt Saleena, who taught me how to make this irresistible and heavenly sweet. She is an awesome cook by herself, and was so kind enough to share her secret recipe with me.. Luv you Aati..!! 🙂

 

 

Though the original recipe calls for Kunafa dough, as it is not easily available in the Indian market, I have used the super thin vermicelli strands. Here is how to make this easy, yet delicious recipe. I am sure this would be a big hit in your family, especially among kids.
