Muhallabia with strawberries

all details

I first tried this Arabic dessert at the amazing Burj-el Arab hotel in Dubai, made with camel's milk - divine. This recipe uses cow's milk.

Ingredients

  • 50g cornflour
  • 1 litre whole milk
  • 90g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp rosewater
  • 2 tbsp ground pistachios
  • strawberries for serving

Method

Mix the cornflour to a smooth paste with 100ml of the cold milk. Bring the remaining milk and the sugar to the boil in a heavy-based pan, stirring. Lower the heat and gradually add the paste to the hot milk, stirring constantly.

Simmer for 6 mins or until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon rather than drip straight off. Add the rosewater, stirring, cook for a further minute, then cool for 10 mins.

Stir again and spoon into small glasses or individual dishes. Cool and refrigerate until set. Scatter a layer of ground pistachios on top then add a small, perfect strawberry.
