Ingredients and method:

Note :this quantity yields 12 small jars or pots.

* 6 cups milk.

* 6 big tablespoons starch.

* 1 tsp mistaka finely crushed with 1/4 cup sugar so as not to stick to the grinder.

* 1 tsp rose water (optional)

* more sugar also optional cause the caramel sauce is sweet.

* leave one or two cups of milk aside and mix starch in them very well.

* add to other quantity,mix all very well then boil till it thickens.

* add mistaka and sugar and the rose water.

* pour in one big bowl or small glass bowls or jars.

* cool in the fridge for at 2-3 hours .



* 1/2 cup sugar melted till caramelized and golden.

* 1/2 cup water added very carefully to the browned sugar.

Milk Pudding with Almonds ( مهلبيه باللوز).

Hello everybody.

My mother in -law invited some of her friends for an early dinner today, main dish will be Eggplant Maqloubeh as requested and I made roasted chicken which will be posted tomorrow.

My part is to make a kind of dessert , was a bit in a dilemma of what to do then the idea just came right to me when my best friend asked me to do a rice or milk pudding for her dear father’s birthday today so I made a big quantity for her and us.

After searching for a new different recipe I decided to do this one from Nestle website,really good and almonds gave it a lovely crunchy taste.


Ingredients and method:

* 1 can sweetened condensed milk.

* 1 liter water.

* 2 big spoons rice flour.( رز مطحون)

* 2 big spoons corn flour.

* 3/4 cup finely crushed almonds.

* 1 tsp cardamon.

* 1 tablespoon rose water.

* 1 tsp crushed gum mastic ( mistika مستكه)

* 4 tablespoons powdered milk.

* some crushed pistachios and cherries for decoration.


* Mix all ingredients except rose water and gum very well with a hand mixer till all are combined.

* Over a high heat keep mixing till it’s bubbly and thick.

* add gum and rose water.

* pour in serving dish or small cups.

* when cooled decorate with pistachios.

* cool in the fridge for 2-3 hours.

NOTE: if mixture wasn’t thick enough when boiled you can dissolve another tablespoon of corn flour and add it to ensure good consistency.
