Uniqop’s Advice:

  1. Do not use hot oil to fry the sweets because that can ruin the sweets.
  2. The easiest way to form the Bmiyeh is to pour the dough into the fennel and cut it as you extract the dough out of it.
  3. You can grill the Bamiehs instead of frying with oil for less calorie and delicious taste.
