Mhullabiya


Mhallabiyyeh – Creamy Rice Pudding

Mhallabiya is a famous and very common dessert in Middle Eastern Cooking. It is very simple and easy to make and result is almost like the Indian ‘Phirni’. Several ways to make it, and is usually made with rice flour, rice paste, corn flour which makes the pudding smooth and thick. I have used rice rava for the grainy texture.
