Shaaria Recipe


200g pasta nests
1/2 cup sesame oil
1 cup sugar
tsp salt
tbsp butter
2 tsp sultanas or coconut (optional)

Put oil in a pan and fry the pasta nests until golden.  Pour a little boiling water over it and immediately cover pan with lid.  Take lid off and let steam escape, pour water after a few seconds until pasta almost covered.  Add salt and cover pan leaving cooking for 5-10 minutes.  Add butter, stirring occasionally while simmering.  Cover with sugar, stirring until sugar melted and noodles are tender.  

You can stir sultanas or coconut powder in when you add water at the beginning.
