Title: Roz bil Halib

 BismEm


Don't be surprised, a recipe from me for the first time :) :)

We returned from a dinner at an old friend's house last week .. me, my dad, my mom, my 2 sisters and my brother.  The food was great, very rich and complicated to prepare.  As much as I would like to give the recipes of the main dishes, I have no idea how to go about with them  ;D  However, the dessert, which was also special was easy to prepare .. so my sister said.  She took the recipe that evening, but couldn't take a pic because we didn't carry our camera.  My sister prepared this dessert a couple of days ago, it turned out great, even better than the one we had at the dinner party.  But forgot to take the pic again, so my sister found the pic of that dessert in a blog today because I told her I wanted to put it up here.  The pic looks exactly the same as the ones we ate at the party and here at our home.  It's called Arabic rice pudding or Roz bil halib in Arabic.

I thought you folks might like it.  So, I'll let my sis type it out and download the pic .... Enjoy it after you make it  :D

From Geant Online Blog (http://blog.geantonline.ae/roz-bil-halib-rice-pudding/)

Items needed
4 cups milk.
1/3 cup short grain rice, washed.
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons rose water or kewra water
Half teaspoon vanilla extract.
1 tablespoons corn starch.
3 tablespoons cream
Bunch of chopped pistachios, blanched, chopped and toasted

How to prepare

In a large pan mix milk and rice.  Bring to boil then reduce the heat, let it
simmer for one and a half hours.

In the meantime, mix the cornstarch with a little cool water into a paste.

After the milk and rice mixture thickens, stir in cream, sugar and then the cornstarch paste gradually, stirring all the time.  Allow to cool for a while.

Then spoon the mixture into a dessert bowl, topped with pistachios as shown in picture.  Refrigerate.  Serve cold.

That's it!   seeyem

W-O-W !!!!   Subhan'Allah!    brother Pt .. u putting up a recipe, and that too such a fabulous one ?  teethsmile    What a pleasant surprise for a dessert lover like me.  I think it's very easy to prepare.  The Pakistani rice pudding is very similar which I'v made many times, except that you don't need to use cornstarch and vanilla.  In place of vanilla put a few strands of saffron, preferably Iranian saffron.  And people also like to use blanced almonds with pistachios.  With the same recipe of Pak rice pudding (or kheer), you can also prepare vermicilli pudding (or sheer qorma), a traditional dessert for the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.  Just replace rice with a handful of shredded vermicilli.   Pic below ..

Thanks a pile dear brother.  I will certainly try Roz bil Halib as soon as possible, and surely in Ramadan.  Allah bless u.

woooooooo !!!!!  recipe comin from br. pt, how come?  simpsons ;D ;D  and what a great one.  yeah, i know of roz bil haleb, also had it several times.  it's my dad's favorite.  I also make it the same way, only omit vanilla and cornstarch.   and brother, i think sugar a quarter cup as u mentioned is too little.  It should be at least three-quarter cup.

Thank u dear brother.  sorry i couldn't come earlier and see this fab recipe.  was sooooo busy today .. InshAllah will drop by tomorrow for longer time.

heeeheeheeeee!  u r welcomed sister Cat.  u think sugar is less?  then i guess my sister made a typing error.  She must have put more because the one she made tasted perfect.  But since u too have great culinary skills, I'm sure u must have sensed correctly.  I'll confirm it from my sister.

wahwah, MashAllah!  indeed I'm very "surprised"  :D :D

This is great dessert.  Sis zeynab is right.  It's very similar to the Pakistan rice pudding called 'kheer.'  The only extra items here are vanilla and cornstarch.  But since I've made kheer many times, on the first day of Ramadan I'll remember to try this, InshAllah.  and yeah, i've noted that sugar should be a bit more .. Thank ya brother :)

heeheeheeehe  ;D   that's gonna be a verrrry expensive Roze bil halib.  FedEx charges $100 for a small envelope with 2 pieces of paper.  Imagine how much they'll charge for carrying a dish of perishable dessert  ;D :D ;D  Compared to that your mama can make it for a total cost of only $10   viictoory
