Muhallebi Recipe / Turkish Milk Pudding

Monday, 30 April 2012

Here is a traditional turkish recipe. On rainy days, or whenever me and my mum are up late at night with no intention of sleeping - she will always pop this one out the bag. It's so simple and delicious. It has this odd taste, one thats slightly similar to that of Baby Born food - but in a really good way. You can either make it with rice or corn flour - I recommend trying it with both because they both give different yet distinctive and delicious tastes! The rice flour version is  much more grainier than its smoother counterpart (cornflour version). 

The Recipe:

1 cup rice flour OR cornflour (rice flour gives a grainy/better taste in my opinion)
1 cup granulated or caster sugar
2/3 cups semi skimmed milk depending on desired consistency

The Method:

Make a paste with the rice flour and sugar using 1/4 cup of the milk.
Put on a medium heat in a saucepan and gradually pour the rest of the milk into the mixture.
Continuously whisk the mixture for about 10 minutes until the mixture thickens.
Take off heat once the mixture has thickened and pour in cups.
Garnish with cinnamon.

  5. Hi,this is my first visit over here...great blog -a feast for the eyes.....i would like to share something, actually in muhallallabia orange blossom water or rose water is used as a flavouring in the arab world...its one of their favourite desserts..i think its that flavour and aroma that make it aurhentic...

  6. Hi Kenz, thank you!
    and thanks for the heads up. I had a feeling such a dessert could be flavoured with rose water as it is heavily used in desserts in north Cyprus as well. Most of the time though, we usually just sprinkle a little bit of cinnamon on top and we find that that's all it needs!


  7. This looks delicious, I will try it out. Thanks for the recipe.
