MOUHALABIEH - A Sweet Dessert For My Dearest Sister : Happy Birthday Rania :)




Mouhalabieh, mahalabiya, mahalabia, muhalabia or mahallabiyya is a simple, delicious middle eastern dessert with origins that traces back to Jordan, and it would always gets served after you have done stuffing yourself with the main course meal ;)


Ingredients:

3 cups rice flour
1 cup corn flour - I used custard powder...for a change :)
3 cups sweetened condensed milk
10-12 cups evaporated milk+water
2 pods cardamom - lightly crushed
pinch saffron threads *optional
3-4 tablespoons rose water
chopped pistachios and raisins to garnish :)

Directions:

Combine rice flour and corn flour. Add to a pot containing milk. Slowly bring to boil and whisk vigorously. Be careful not to scorch the mixture. Add cardamom and saffron* and continue stirring until the mixture thicken. Remove from heat, add rosewater and stir well. Pour pudding into cups and refrigerate to chill. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios and raisins. Serve :)




Scientific researches have found that eating 1.5 ounces of Pistachio a day, coupled to a low cholesterol and saturated fat intake diet may actually be very good for cardiovascular health. So enjoy your Mouhalabieh :)

Suggestion: it is best after some refrigeration, but no too long or the pistachio bits would lose its crunchiness.

When God wanted us to have a sister

He sends us the best we could ever want

We treasure every memory we created

For it's unrivalled worth

No one can know us as we do

And all we treasure of our past

We have our special secrets

And understand each other's heart

We may not tell you as we should

How much you mean to all of us

So, today we send you lots of love

For today to be a treat

Have a special birthday then dear sis

You deserve the very best

And so we ask in prayer

For every moment to be blessed

And we keep your past by having sisters

And as we get older

They're the only ones who don't get bored

When we talk about our memories together...


Happy Birthday.....:)
