For the sweet touch of oriental dinner, I wanted to get into a Moroccan pastry. Only problem, I did not want a dessert too fat or too heavy. So I improvised a recipe with Najet's tips. I managed delicious samosas with almonds and orange flower that tastes like nothing so much as a baklava but less fat, I was delighted with the result. With a small salad of oranges and cinnamon, it was simply divine…
