Brewed Lady's fingers.

One of the delicacies, which indulged in the eastern beauties in the harems - Waxed "Lady fingers".

They "Fingers of beauties" and "Fingers of the Vizier" are a number of recipes of Arabic cuisine with a characteristic form and necessarily from a fried custard batter.

In different countries, names may vary slightly, and the shape can be either smooth or grooved, but it is always oblong and roughly corresponds to the length of the finger.

The dessert has the aroma and taste characteristic of the Oriental cuisine, but the uncommon Europeans: "Fingers of beauties" are traditionally abundantly poured with rose petals or flavored syrup.

And dough and syrup are further enriched with the aroma of citrus peel. In general, all together - it's something from the Thousand and One Nights, incredibly sweet and fragrant.

I once tried to do as it should (there is about 200 ml of jam from rose petals for such a quantity of dough) - for me this is a specific search both for the level of sweetness and for the level of "pinkness".

But, maybe, among the readers of this recipe there are fans of classical Arabian desserts - so you do it right, you know, it's impossible to re-sweeten them!

I recommend to all the rest friendly - do as you please. Frittated pastry dough, and even with orange peel - this is quite a naughty thing, even with a small amount of the most ordinary honey or sugar syrup.

It still has an interesting consistency and an "eastern" flavor, even without rose petals.
