Umm ali & Muhallebi

23:09 Niloufer Riyaz 5 Comments

What could be more delightful than a tasty n divine dessert, Yes Iam speaking about the two famous dessert Muhallebi n Umm Ali. Each Arabic Country has it own version of Muhallebi n UmmAli so its like a common dessert to all the Arqab world. Umm Ali is a simple yet delicious dessert made with puff pasrty n milk. In olden days they were made with bread n milk. I made this dessert with croissants n I feel makingb them with croissants tastes best because of the buttery taste from the croissants. its not only rich but tasty too. The photo of this dish is in my personal laptop  so will be uploading them once my laptop is repaired. 
Muhallebi  is another simple dessert flavoured with rose water n vanilla. Its aromatic n I ve omitted Qaimar( Iraqi Cream) n used thick cream instead n omitted the egg yolk for a creamy texture.. The original recipe is here from Arabic Bites.
