Muhallabieh

This Lebanese, Syrian, Jordanian, Palestinian, and Egyptian pudding (Muhallabieh) is a favorite both in summer and winter, especially liked by children. In the Middle East the rice may be purchased already pulverized. It could also be pulverized at home with a mortar and pestle or in an electric blender.

Ingredients:
  • 1 qt. milk
  • 1/4 cup pounded rice
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ma'ez zahr (orange blossom essence)
  • 1/4 cup chopped blanched almonds and skinned pistachio nuts
Preparation:


1 Mix rice with water and add to milk which has been brought to a boil.
2 Stir and cook until thickened and then add sugar.
3 Continue cooking and stirring until mixture coats the spoon.
4 Add flavorings and boil a few minutes longer.
5 Pour into individual serving dishes and decorate with chopped nuts.
