Rosewater (or rose syrup) is made from the crushed petals of roses, and lends a lovely distinctive floral touch to custards, puddings, pancakes, scones, cookies, pastries, marzipan, ice cream, lassis, and pilaus, and even to sparkling wines or champagne! A little accent of roses goes a long way, so don't overdo!
From DeliciousLiving.com. I love to sprinkle rosewater on sliced strawberries and thought it would taste good in this recipe, too. As I was preparing to post this recipe, the idea occurred to me how good blackberries would be as a substitute for the strawberries. Just a thought and a suggestion... Molto facile!
I was hooked after one bite of this very exotic dessert. The first time I ever tried it, it was after some prompting from my friend to just "try it!" Well I did and after a while would haunt this ice cream shop in New Hope Pennsylvania, because that was the only other place I could find it (although thiers was not quite as good) I finally found a recipe after a google search. Thank you to the Border Grill, in Pasadena for publishing this recipe on the NBC4 website! (cooking time is approximate freezing time)
This ice cream is a real treat for all the senses. I wanted to make a special treat for dessert but didn’t have a great deal of time so ended up creating this little beauty! Using store bought strawberry ice cream cuts your work & time in the kitchen in half & the strawberry really brings out the delicate rose flavours. If you're serving the ice cream straight away, you can add the meringue nuggets but if it's to stay in the freezer for a while, you may want to leave them out & make meringue nests to serve the ice cream in instead. Prep time includes freezing time. Please note that the recipes does state 10 tablespoons of rose water - this is because the rose water I used here is a very weak one from East End Foods. If you have a nice strong rose water, from an Arab manufacturer, please only use 4-5 tablespoons...or to taste.
This was the first time I ever made custard-based ice cream, and it was delicious! The rose water and saffron go great together, without overpowering each other. I doubled the original recipe, since most ice cream machines need at least 4 cups of liquid (also because my family gobbled it up in no time!).
This is the Lebanese way of making rice pudding, very simple. The rosewater can be found in gourmet food places and middle eastern food stores, and online. I found it one time at a Kroger. You can substitute with any other flavor you like.
Comfort food with an unusual twist for lovers of Turkish Delight. Looks beautiful garnished with fresh rose petals. Note regarding pudding rice: pudding rice is a type of rice sold in the United Kingdom. If you can't find it, use a short grain rice. It doesn't have to be soaked beforehand. Do not use Basmati rice, that's a form of long grain rice!
A little of this over cut-up fresh fruit which is then chilled -- heaven! You can vary the spices, adding such things as star anise or cardamom pods, cloves, allspice berries. If you have access to unsprayed rose petals, make your own rose water--there are recipes on Zaar--and save a ton of money. Note: cooking time is really cooling time.
This is the first dish I learnt as an adult and still it is my speciality... there's only one word to describe it... yum! When I'm cooking this for my husband and myself, I usually remove the legs whole, sprinkle them with spices and brown under grill, and then add the remaining chicken to the rice as per instructions.
A traditional Indian/Pakistani desert drink. My version uses ingredients you can easily find at your local Indian and Chinese Grocery store. This recipe is super easy and tastes BETTER than what you can find at most Indian restaurants!! The Falooda Seeds are optional since they don't really have a flavor, but they do add to the authentic look (a little like floating tadpoles!), and are actually very good for digestion in a hot climate.
