Malabi - blossom Middle Eastern pudding

By Vered Guttman May.13, 2012

Mahalabiya, or Malabi, is a milk based pudding that is thickened with either rice flour or cornstarch and topped with a sweet syrup.

Traditionally the pudding is perfumed with rose water, but I prefer the orange blossom water, Ma-Zahar. You can get both perfumed waters in Middle Eastern markets.

Serves 8


5 cups milk
1/2 cup rice flour (or cornstarch)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon orange blossom water

For the strawberry sauce:
6 oz. strawberries, thinly sliced
1.5 oz. sugar

Chopped pistachios, optional


1. Dissolve the rice flour in one cup of milk and set aside.

2. Bring the rest of the milk and sugar to low boil over medium heat and add the rice flour and milk mixture in. Mix constantly for 3-5 minutes until pudding begins to thicken and coats the back of the spoon. Add orange blossom water and remove from the h
