Meghli (Rice Pudding)
This is a Lebanese dish. Meghli is served on special occasions,
such as the birth of a child.
1 cup ground rice
5 cups cold water
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon powdered aniseed
1/2 teaspoon powdered fennel seed
1/2 teaspoon powdered caraway seed
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Shredded coconut for garnish (optional)
Note: some like to double the amount of sugar in this recipe,
such as me!
Mix one cup of the cold water and the ground rice into a smooth
paste. Stir in the sugar and next 4 ingredients.
In a heavy saucepan bring the remaining 5 cups of water to a
boil. Stir in the rice mixture gradually, stir vigorously. Stir
constantly until the mixture comes to boil again. Reduce heat and
simmer. Stir occasionally about 1 hour or until done. You will know
it is done when it coats the outside of the spoon.
Transfer to individual dessert bowls and refrigerate. Serve
chilled. Decorate with coconut or slivered almonds if desired.
