This was a favorite of mine during Ramadan! Serve pudding on small plates with chopped nuts on the top.

  • Whisk water and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth; stir into boiling milk. Cook milk mixture over medium heat until thickened to the consistency of cake batter, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and stir cream, rose water, and cardamom into milk mixture.

  • Refrigerate milk mixture until completely cooled, 2 to 4 hours.

Cook's Note:

You can use skim milk if you like. Some Arabic regions use rice with it; you can use 1 cup of rice in 2 cups of milk after boiling to bind it.

It came out great! I made it twice the second time I substituted cardamom with a mixture of equal amounts of Nutmeg and Cinnamon. It tasted just as good! Read More

I made this at Christmas and I must admit I did not have any as I do not like anything flavoured with Rose Water (or flowery stuff in general). HOWEVER those who ate it (including my hubby who IS a fan said it was delicious! One thing I did was pour it out of the pan through a strainer to ensure there were not clumps of anything before putting it in my ramekins and setting it - the final product was smooth as a baby's bum!:-) Read More

Very tasty but the preparation caused me a fair amount of distress because the mixture started to stick and burn at the bottom of the saucepan leaving unpleasant chunks of stuff in the pudding. I strained the mixture after cooking (I don't know if it was as thick as it should have been). Regardless it was well-flavored and delightful to eat after going through all that. Read More

Super tasty!! I used 1/4 t. ground cardamom (next time I may double that as I love the flavor) and only 1 TEASPOON of Rose Water. Any more would've made it inedible. Read More
