How to prepare

Whisk eggs with oil, milk and sugar until the mixture becomes homogeneous.

Mix the dry ingredients well then add eggs with rose water and melted butter. Continue mixing until the dough becomes sticky somehow.

Cover the dough and leave to rest for at least six hours.

Mix the filling ingredients and set aside.

Divide the dough into four sections, then give each a rectangular shape. Fill the dough with walnut mixture then wrap it to make a roll. Cut the dough into rings, before placing them on a tray in a preheated oven. Bake the rolls until they turn brownish.
