Here's the recipe for a Lebanese dish that we prepared for our Middle Eastern Feast. This light, refreshing dessert makes a wonderful summer treat. It's flavors mingle into a pleasantly surprising, delightfully creamy dish.
4 cups milk
4 heaped TBSP ground rice (cream of rice) or cornstarch
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp Orange Blossom Water
1 tsp Rose Water
1/3 cup blanched almonds or coarsely ground pistachios
Put milk and rice in a sauce pan over high heat.
Bring to a boil stirring constantly.
Reduce heat to low and add sugar.
Continue stirring for 7 minutes or until the liquid thickens.
Add Orange Blossom and Rose water, simmer, still stirring for two more minutes.
Remove from heat.
Pour into one shallow bowl or 4-6 custard cups.
Cool and garnish with ground nuts.
Add a sprig of mint. (if desired)
Much herbal love,
