Malabi – a creamy, milk-based pudding perfumed with rose water – is a Middle Eastern popular summer desert sold on the streets. We love it so much and want to share our Malabi recipe with you.
Chopped pistachios for garnish
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups milk
1/2 cup cornstarch
1 Tablespoon rose water
Raspberry syrup (optional)
In a medium bowl, mix one cup of milk with the cornstarch, rose water, and vanilla until the cornstarch dissolves; set aside. Bring remaining milk and sugar to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Lower the heat, pour in the dissolved cornstarch mixture and cook 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken.
Remove from the stove and pour into serving dishes. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to cool to room temperature; then refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Serve topped with the chopped pistachios and raspberry syrup, if desired.
Tell us how it came out!
