The M7albiya (Muhalabiya) is a great way to make sure that you don’t wake up in the morning with a 7aarij (heart burn), especially during ramadan where you’re left helpless throughout the day.
We prepare many cups similar to the one pictured above, and we all make sure to eat some later at night after our last meal. It works like magic, and prevents the 7arij every time. It’s very easy to make too.
To prepare a muhalabiya all you need is:
- Rose Water
A big table spoon of starch and sugar for each cup of milk, it depends on the quantity you’re making. I would add more sugar, but thats me. Rose water is optional, a table spoon would be more than enough if you ask me.
Begin by adding all of the things mentioed above together in a pot while it’s still cold, then begin heating and stir. Keep stirring til it thickens, then pour into little cups and put em in the firdge till they cool.
You can add some fruits or nuts on top, But thats really unnecessary, After all we’re trying to avoid 7arij here.
Voila! Bon Appétit!
Note: While you’re in the kitchen and have some starch lying around, you might wanna check this post out and make use of the excess starch!
