Mahalabia @ Blueberry Pudding Recipe With Strawberry Syrup

resepi pencuci mulut
Delicious and refreshing Mahalabia :)
Today, after procrastinating for so long, I managed to try out the Blueberry Mahalabia With Strawberry Syrup Dessert inspired by an episode from My Kitchen Rules. Googling for the recipe was quite easy. Following the given recipe was another story. I have eaten my fair share of mahalabia but never a blueberry mahalabia before. The recipe given was suspicious in many ways:

1) The amount of sugar (220g) used for the mahalabia, if you consider the fact that you are going to eat it with strawberry syrup (another 220g of sugar) , how sickeningly sweet is this dessert supposed to be? 

2) The other thing that is going to surely fail your attempt in making this dessert ( if you follow the instructions to the T) is to mix 1/3cup corn flour with just 2 tbsp of water (how thick is that?) and then add it to the milk and sugar mixture that you have brought to boil. Any cook worth her salt knows that that is instant curdling disaster! 

3) The strawberry syrup uses 250g strawberries, 220g sugar and 125g water.. that makes the syrup either watery OR you are going to spend a pretty long time stirring the mixture till it reduces to the right consistency.

Blueberry Dessert With Strawberry Syrup Yummy!
In light of the above, I decided to just go ahead and take the Blueberry Mahalabia with Strawberry Syrup Recipe from My Kitchen Rules as a very rough guide and wing it with my own Mahalabia-making experience. My blueberry milk pudding recipe with strawberry syrup thus became like this:

Mahalabia Recipe:

125gm blueberries
1 tbsp honey
4 cups milk
7 tbsp corn starch
7 tbsp sugar

Strawberry Syrup Recipe:

375gm chopped strawberry
slightly less than 1 and 1/4 cup castor sugar
135ml water


Sliced Strawberries and Whole Raspberries as desired

To make the Blueberry Mahalabia:

1) Heat up the saucepan and put in the blueberries and honey and stir over low fire till mixture is soft and pulpy.
2) In a separate saucepan (do not turn on the fire first) whisk the milk, corn starch and sugar together, then turn on the fire and stir continuously till the mixture thickens and feel slightly heavy (if you are unsure, watch this video here)  Add in the blueberry mixture and scoop into your desired serving glass 2/3 full. Refrigerate overnight.

To make the strawberry syrup:

1) Mix all the ingredients and stir over low heat till the mixture reduces by half or more according to your preference. Refrigerate till ready to serve.

This was my desired consistency.. yours could be different

When serving:

Pour the strawberry syrup over the Mahalabia and garnish with a few slices of strawberries and raspberries.

P/S: If you find that the Mahalabia is a bit soft for your liking, you might want to add a bit more corn starch.
