I would like to share with you a recipe for a delicious Middle Eastern Dessert - Muhallabia. When you prepare it at home you can adjust the amount of sugar, when you go for the low sugar option it can be a light and satisfying dessert.
I know you can get an instant packet mix of this delicacy but it's so easy to make it from scratch I hope I will encourage you to prepare it at home.
It's very easy to veganise, as all that we do is just replace the regular milk with a plant based version. Rich and creamy - an essence of Middle Eastern Treats
✅ 500ml plant based milk (go for an unsweetened version, avoid coconut milk as it might have too strong a flavour)
✅50 corn starch
✅40g sugar or sweetener of your choice
✅1/2 tablespoon of rose water (you can substitute with a few drops of rose cake essence)
✅1 tablespoon of orange blossom water (you can substitute with 2 tablespoons of orange juice)
dried fruits/ rose petals/nuts to garnish
1. Warm up your milk and add corn starch, Mix with a spoon until all the lumps are dissolved. It's easier to do it on a low heat
2. Add sugar, rose water and orange blossom water. Stir constantly until the mixture thickens up.
3. Pour the Muhallabia into serving bowls and place in the fridge to chill for at least an hour before serving. Garnish with fresh or dried rose petals, crushed nuts , dried fruits or fresh fruits
Happy Cooking 👩🍳
