"A classic Middle Eastern dessert, which I have often eaten in Middle Eastern restaurants, so I was pleased to find it in Christine Osborne's 'Middle Eastern Food and Drink'. I have not yet tried this recipe. I am posting it for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. When I've eaten this dish, it has been garnished with chopped pistachio nuts. This recipe offers chopped almonds as an alternative. This is a make-ahead recipe: the estimated preparation and cooking times do not include the time needed for chilling."

"This is THE truly authentic recipe for Muhallabia. I have had this book for years and enjoy many of the recipes. I think that the ground almonds provide an interesting texture, the rosewater and nutmeg are essential for the middle-eastern touch, and they take a dessert that on first impressions resembles baby rice to something far more unusual. I am living in Egypt, and this dish always impresses our friends!! Thanks for reminding me about it Bluemoon... The book itself is at my family home in Scotland!"
