I tried to think of something puddingish....but nothing really came to mind.
There is always chocolate pudding - but what is so special with that?
There is bread pussing...but i have never made it, nor rice pudding, english toffee pudding or any other pudding for that matter.
I am not a pudding person....Do we even have pudding here that is non-instant (we have plenty of that.
But of course we do. I can be such a bozo(my dad loves that word)
MALABI! Thats a pudding! And it is very middle eastern, Turkish I think. Throughout the years it has become one of the most Israeli puddings here. Both Malabi and Salep (made from orchads) and is served at all middle -eastern type restaurants.
Here is my version, the recipe taken for one of the israeli food forums, adapted from Mr. Botansky.
8 glass serving cups
1 400 gram jar of cherries
1 cup juice from cherry jar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. cornflour
In a small saucepan mix all ingredients. Put over medium heat and stir until sauce thickens. Spoon into cups about 1" full.
Over the sauce place a few cherries.
2 cups milk (not non-fat)
1 cup cream
2 Tbsp. Rose water
4 Tbsp. cornflour
8 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Heat over low heat while stiring constantly until cream thickens. Pour into cups over the cherries.
Chill in refrigerator.
Before serving garnish with cherries
And pistachios. And serve
