Why do it yourself?You may be asking why to prepare your own pastry leaves ...
1 For the majority of people worldwide dioul isn't available at your local market. Areas where it's not available subsituting phyllo, strudel, flour based spring roll wrappers, or egg roll wrappers is one option, but sometimes you want authentic ingredients so preparing dioul at home is just a matter of patience and a little time.
2 Even if you live (like I do), in Algeria where dioul is widely available there are times, like during Ramadan where it can be challenging to find good quality dioul due to high demand and everyone being on vacation. And sometimes, like in Ramadan running all around town hunting it down just isn't an option.
3 Dioul is actually fun to make, tedious but fun to make. A real family bonding activity to do with your children any lazy weekend afternoon Think Montessori:)
4 You can flavor the dioul anyway you want, by adding herbs and spices of your choice.
5 You can make any size or shape you like according to your desired use
6 Homemade is a fraction of the cost then store bought (even here in Algeria). JThe preparation of dioul is super simple and take 2 minutes. Cooking is a bit tedious but I found a little technique introduced on the Moroccan show Choumicha then gone viral all over the Internet by way of the talented Nadia to facilitate this. The result is really nice! Moroccan cook Alia from Cooking with Alia did a two part special with the world reknowned Paula Woffert on the preparation of dioul, or warka as its known in Morocco here and here for your viewing pleasure.
