Resepi Pencuci Mulut: Easy Chocolate Pudding Recipe @ Mahalabiya Recipe

egyptian dessert recipes
Easy Mahlabia Recipe

Mahlabia or milk pudding is my favorite Egyptian dessert back when I was still studying in Cairo. I remember going to a shop near our clubhouse every Thursday before our weekly gatherings for this decadent dessert. It never came across my mind to make it myself back then. But now, since Cairo is hours away by flight from Malaysia, when craving strikes, you just have to turn on the stove. Who knows it is very easy to make this milk pudding? I sure didn't! But easy it sure is. 

Ingredients for milk pudding is as such: 

(serves 3)
4 tbsp corn starch
3 tbsp sugar
2 cups milk
3 tbsp cocoa powder (I used nesquick powder instead) 

How to make this super simple chocolate milk pudding?

Just whisk everything (except for the cocoa powder) in a saucepan, then put on low heat while stirring constantly, add in the cocoa powder and stir till the mixture thickens and it feels heavy when you are stirring. Turn off the heat and scoop into small bowls and refrigerate.  

If you are unsure of when to turn off the heat, you can watch the original recipe's video here.

Malay Version

Mahlabia atau puding susu adalah pencuci mulut kegemaranku sewaktu menuntut di Cairo dahulu. Masih lagi jelas kenangan membeli Mahlabia setiap kali menuju ke rumah pelajar untuk perjumpaan mingguan kami. Tak pernah pula terlintas di fikiran untuk membuatnya sendiri pada masa tu. Sekarang ni bila Cairo dah jauh di mata, terpaksalah belajar macam mana nak buat Mahlabia ni sendiri, rupa-rupanya tersangat mudah!

Bahan-bahan untuk puding susu coklat: 

(untuk 3 orang)
4 sdm tepung jagung
3 sdm gula pasir
2 cwn susu
3 sdm serbuk koko (saya guna serbuk nesquick je)

Cara-cara membuat puding susu simple ni:

Kacau semua bahan-bahan kecuali koko di dalam periuk, panaskan atas api yang kecil, kemudian masukkan serbuk koko dan kacau terus hingga pekat. Padamkan api dan tuangkan ke dalam mangkuk kecil dan sejukkan di dalam peti ais.

Kalau anda tak pasti bila nak matikan api tu, sebab mungkin tak pernah makan Mahlabia ni, lihat video resepi asal di sini.

Selamat Mencuba!
