Malabi or milk pudding
Full fat milk - 1 and 1/2 cup
Cream - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/4 cup
Corn flour - 1/4 cup
Rosewater/rose essence - 1 teaspoon
Water - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Red food colour - 2 drops
Rose essence - 1/2 teaspoon
For the custard, put the milk, cream, sugar and corn flour in a bowl and whisk to mix them well
Put this mixture over medium heat and start to cook. Keep stirring to ensure that the milk doesn’t burn
In about 7/8 minutes, your milk mixture will start to thicken
Switch off heat, add the rose essence and allow the Malabi to sit in room temperature for a couple of minutes
Pour this in individual moulds, cover the moulds with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for a few hours
To make the syrup, put sugar and water in a heat proof bowl and cook till the sugar dissolves
Add the food colouring and cook till the syrup is slightly viscous
Remove from heat, stir in the rose essence and put this aside to cool. The syrup will thicken a little more as it cools
Remove the Malabi moulds from the fridge
Top each glass/ramekin with the rose syrup
Sprinkle with some nuts
