Another Qursa Recipe. Take white flour and five eggs and half a ratl of fresh bread, and take some cheese, and mix until the cheese is not visible in it. Then knead with whites of eggs and a little ...[a word missing]... and make good thin qursas and fry in much oil so that they come out white. Then boil pounded walnuts in honey, and pour pistachios and pine nuts on them [the qursas] and sprinkle with sugar and serve.
[The walnuts in honey are poured on too, of course.]
