2 + 1/4 cups homogenized milk
1/3 cup heavy cream, 35%

To prepare the Mustic Pudding; place all the ingredients except mustic powder and butter in a medium-size cooking pot. Stir constantly for about 10 minutes to make it thick. Then add the powdered mastic and butter, continue to cook for about one more minute while stirring. Take it off the stove. Pour into the blender. Blend for about 6-7 minutes over medium speed. Immediately pour into individual bowls.

Hi Binnur,
This recipe looks delicious, can't wait to try it. But you have 1/2 cup flour in the recipe, then you say to use corn starch and rice flour in the directions. Can you clarify please?
Thank you!!

Mastic is a resin based ingredient with a flavor similar to licorice. So, it adds very nice flavor to it:)
