Kaber Ellouz (Tunisian Almond Balls) By Taras Multi Cultural Table
Kaber Ellouz are almond balls from Tunisia. They are made by braiding together 3 pieces of almond dough- one plain, one dyed red, and one dyed green.
You can make vanilla sugar at home and it is also available in many supermarkets. If you are unable to find it, substitute by adding 2 teaspoons superfine sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract when making the syrup.
The original recipe called for ground almonds. I used pre-made almond meal. You can use almonds and grind them yourself, but they need to be fine and not too oily to make a smooth dough.
