This is an amazing dessert which my family relished last spring. This morning I was going through my drafts and found this recipe. How on earth did I forget to publish this!! I am writing this note as per Sawsan’s instructions. This is a middle Eastern dessert which will be everyone’s favourite once a spoonful is eaten:) Spring is just knocking on our doors and I look forward to visit to our local berry farms to get a basket full of them to make this divine dessert.
Here is the recipe for Madlouah
4 cups milk
1/2 cup shredded coconut
2/3 cup semolina
2/3 teaspoon ground mastic
Place all the ingredients in a pot and stir continuously on medium low flame till the consistency thickens, pour it in a serving dish, allow it to cool and then place it in the fridge before serving spread some heavy cream on top of the madlouah and sprinkle pistachios and sliced fruit,drizzle it with rosewater syrup (2 cups of sugar 1 cup of water, place them in a pot and bring them to a gentle boil, allow to boil for 5 minutes, turn off the heat and add a table spoon of orange blossom water). I did not have mastic, so did not use it.
