Muhallabia (Middle Eastern Pudding)

This is one of my favorite desserts from home.


 4 Cups of Milk

1/2 Cup of Sugar

4 Tbsp of Cornstarch

1 Tsp of Flower Water

Lemon Zest

Toasted Nuts to Garnish

 How to Prepare:

 In a saucepan, heat the milk and sugar on medium-high heat.

While the milk is heating, remove 1 cup of the milk mixture and place it in a bowl.

 Add cornstarch and whisk well.

 Add the mix back to the pan and stir bringing it to a boil (whisk every now and then to prevent from sticking to the bottom).

 Once the mixture thickens, remove from heat.

 Add the flower water.

 Pour into bowls or cups.

 Let it cool down, and when cool, top it with toasted nuts and lemon zest.  Then place in the fridge for an hour or two before serving.
