Luqaimat, a traditional Emirati dessert often enjoyed with Arabic coffee.
Aisha Hamad AlMidfa
Luqaimat is a well-known traditional Emirati dessert that many Emiratis and non-Emiratis indulge in. It is a crowd’s favourite at parties, gatherings, weddings, and during the holy month of Ramadan.
Luqaimat is widely enjoyed with Arabic coffee, but it can be enjoyed without it as well. It is doughy and airy, making it a light dessert, especially when complemented by date molasses or date syrup. For better precision try not making the dough batter too runny so that you have more control over shaping the batter when frying.
