Bread Kunafa

Kunafa is a traditional Arabic dessert using kunafa dough and cream cheese. Those who tasted it once can't forget the melt in mouth soft and cheesy delight. As i'm residing in Kerala it's hard to find the kunafa dough and cream cheese here; So i decided to make it's alternative version with bread. It is one of the easiest and cheat version of kunafa you ever had!!! And in no doubt the taste was promising😋😋😋
