Mahalabia recipe please
I recently went to a Middle Eastern restaurant and tried a dessert called mahalabia (sp?) and was wondering if anyone knows a good recipe. I've tried looking online but I would prefer it if someone could suggest a tried/true recipe. Thanks!
Heres a home made recipe for mahalabia:
32 oz. whole milk
2 Tbsp. corn starch or flour
4 oz. sugar
rose water (optional)
sliced fresh fruit (optional)
In a large pot heat 28oz of milk slowly on a very low flame. In the remaining milk add corn starch or flour and dissolve to thicken the pudding.When milk is hot add sugar, 4 drops of rose water (optional) and the remaining 4oz of milk and mix till pudding thickens. Serve in a small bowl hot or cold. When cold you can serve with fresh fruits.
I love it cold if you dont want to use fresh fruit you could chopp up unsalted nutes like almonds or pistachios. I hope this is what you were looking for.
That's very similar to my recipe! I serve it cold with fresh fruit and chopped toasted almonds or pistachios also!
Sometimes I've had it with a thin fruity gelatin that is layered on top of the pudding and even with the cut up fruit pieces embedded in the gelatin.
Any which way it's delicious!
Oh and also you can use orange blossom water instead of rose (which is what I prefer over rose!)
