Traveling ... in cuisine from around the world: Saudi Arabia - the notes of citrus

(This recipe is Nuxia)

The Muhallabiya is a typical dessert of the East. In reality, its origin is unknown. In fact there are two particular contenderselo countries: Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Some argue that this cake whose base is made of milk and rice flour, both born in Egypt and then be "exported" to the Arabs. In any case if you are in Saudi and ask you to serve a Muhallabya​​, you will be disappointed. The aroma of rice mixed with the delicate scent of orange flower water, makes this dish a very fresh and light dessert. Legend has it that if you shake the bowl (usually in a crock) which is served Muhallabiya, should vibrate like the belly of an Oriental dancer, which seems to have inspired this cake. I find that the Muhallabiya is a perfect dessert after a meal, in addition to the virtue of being served to people with celiac disease, the absence of gluten.

Ingredients for 4 people:

1 liter of whole milk
80 - 100g rice flour end
100g of sugar
orange flower water
To decorate:
Small confetti colored sugar
chopped almonds and pistachios

One liter of milk prelevarne a cup, and work this cold milk with the rice flour. Bring the remaining milk to a boil in a nonstick pan or a crock, sweeten with sugar, then pour the milk previously mixed with rice flour and stir constantly over low heat. When the mixture begins to thicken, flavor the cream with two or three tablespoons of natural orange blossom water and mix again briefly. Pour the dessert in individual bowls, and let the cake cool in the refrigerator. Before serving, decorate with small confetti colored sugar or chopped almonds and pistachios.
