This is truly a delicious and very flavoursome dessert that you will love, do really try it and I bet you you won’t be able to stop!
It is customary in the Middle East, especially in the area of the Levant, to serve this pudding to celebrate the birth of a baby. It is served for guest welcoming, and also served to the new mother for its many health benefits. Mughli is made out of powdered caraway seeds (Caraway is a plant related to anise, fennel, and dill). It is usually used to flavor rye bread and many other foods, including cabbage, pickles, soups, casseroles, curries, and cheeses, as well as being used in liqueurs.
Caraway is known for its health benefits (read more at the end of the post), this Mughli (otherwise known as Karawya) is therefore a delicious pudding that is also healthy for you. It can be had anytime, and can also be served as dessert after a meal. But because it contains sugar and powdered rice it is best had in moderation. To know more about this spice, dessert and its hot pudding variation along with the stories associated with it grab a copy of my book “Plated Heirlooms” and read more there.
