Moghli

Moghli, Meghli, Meghleh, Caraway or Karawiyah –they all point to the same Levantine rice-pudding dessert. Did you know that this dish was traditionally served to commemorate the birth of a male heir? These days it’s made to celebrate any newborn, including the birth of Christ on Christmas. It is believed to nourish new mums, giving them a needed boost to their health. Enjoy this silky pudding, topped with mixed nuts for added texture!

Instructions

  1. Combine pudding ingredients

    • In a deep pan, add rice flour, sugar, caraway,c innamon, fennel and anise. Stir till well combined, then pour in water and mix well using hand whisk.


  2. Boil pudding

    • Place over medium heat and stir until the caraway pudding comes to a boil. The mixture will thicken gradually, and it will take around 20 minutes to thicken.
    • Make sure you stir continuously and scrape the bottom of the pot to prevent the pudding from burning. The secret is the medium heat and constant stirring.
    • At the end, pudding should coat the back of a spoon.
