Achtalye (Milk Pudding) Recipe

Achtalye (Milk Pudding) in a dish

There is an amazing wide variety of Middle Eastern desserts. Some of these desserts are very complicated and require a lot of ingredients and preparation, like baklava, knefe and others. On the other had, some of them are simple, easy and quick to made, like the Achtalye I prepare today. This dessert can be found in Lebanon and in Palestine, and is similar to a dessert to Mhalabiyye, a kind of pudding made out of milk and cornflour. It is very high in calcium so its good for growing children and babies.

3 cups water
1/2 cup cornflour + 1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon mastic, grounded
1 tablespoon orange blossom water
1/2 cup pistachios for decoration

1. Mix the cornflour with a half cup of water until it all dissolves
2. In a casserole place the powder milk, water and the cornflour and mix well
3. Place the casserole on a fire and let it boil, stirring constantly until it thickens
4. Add the mastic, remove from off the fire and pour the orange blossom water
5. Put this pudding into small individual bowls, allow to cool then refrigerate
6. To serve, decorate with pistachios and pour sugar syrup over
