10th of the month means it's time for another MFB Challenge.Sometimes I feel my blog runs due to such Challenges,because at least at the the last hour,I manage to do the post.Its not purposely because I am engaged in so many things.Like I have a physiotherapy on alternative days,then the other days I have joined the Quran Tajweed and Grammer classes,where we have to study our portions etc.Sometimes a 7th STD boy comes for tuitons and at the end of the day after my house chores I just need to find my bed...hehe.
Today's Challenge was to prepare anything from a lovely blog,from 'Shab's Cuisine'.A blog with so many wonderful recipes,mainly those traditional recipes from the Malabar side,the lovely bakes,the middle eastern sweets and much more.Looking at her recipe index I had already planned to do something from her Arabic flavors,any sweets.So I tried this easy Middle Eastern Dessert Muhallabia.
This is a creamy pudding flavored with rose water and garnished with nuts and Dates(you can use any dry fruits).Now on to the recipe:
Condensed Milk 1 tin
Water 1 l
Rice flour 1/2 cup
Corn flour 2 tbsp
Rose water 1/2 to 3/4 tbsp
Dates chopped 1 cup
Almonds or Pistachios to garnish
-In a saucepan add the water and condensed milk and mix well.Stir in the rice flour and corn flour to this and mix thoroughly using a whisk.
-Place on low to medium heat stirring continuously till the mixture turns thick.
-Now add in the rose water,stir and remove from flame.
-Add in the chopped Dates.Pour in serving bowls and refrigerate.
-Garnish with Dates and nuts and serve.
