Rice with milk (dessert)

This dish is the kind of sweet which can be eaten after a meal, or as a snack, even for breakfast. When we were young me and my brothers use to eat it with french bread and kashkawal cheese, and we still like to eat it this way until now. Sometimes the child inside  me, doesn’t want to grow up 😛

Rice and milk


  • 1/2 cup of egyptian rice, half boiled
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of corn flour diluted with 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of  flower water
  • White musk (one teaspoon), crushed with one teaspoon of sugar


  • Put the rice in 1/2 cup of water and boil it until the rice is half cooked
  • Boil the milk in a pot and then add the rice and stir continuously until the rice is well cooked
  • Add the sugar, and stir until the sugar is dissolved
  • Put the corn flour in half a cup of water and mix it, add it now to the milk and rice, stir until the milk thickens
  • Now you can add the white musk
  • Turn off the fire and add the flower water
  • Put the mixture in small cups and when its cold you can decorate them with pistachios or dried raisins

C’est fini!
