How to Make Muhallebi

  • Mix the milk and sugar in a large saucepan and heating slowly, so as not to burn the milk, bring to a simmer.
  • Make a slurry by dissolving the rice flour and cornstarch in the water and, stirring constantly, slowly add this mixture to the simmering milk.
  • Simmer gently for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring frequently, until the mixture has thickened sufficiently to coat a spoon. Remove from the heat.
  • Stir in the rose water or orange flower water.
  • Pour into a 9 x 13 inch baking pan and refrigerate until chilled and set.
  • Cut into pieces about 4 inches square.
  • Place the squares on individual dessert plates and garnish with the chopped pistachios.
