Strawberry Milk Pudding
(Çilekli Muhallebi - Istanbul)
4 + 1/2 cups 3.25% whole milk
1/2 cup cream, 35% (heavy cream)
3/4 cup sugar
3 tbsp rice flour
4 tbsp corn starch
400 g strawberries, rinsed, sliced + 3 tbsp powdered sugar
First, mix strawberry slices with powdered sugar in a bowl. Put aside for an hour. Place it in a blender and pulse 3-4 times.
Place and whisk 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup cream, sugar, rice flour and corn starch in a medium-size cooking pot. Dissolve the sugar at medium heat. Slowly add the 4 cups of milk. Stir constantly to make it thick enough. Add in the strawberries and continue to cook for about 2 more minutes while stirring. Immediately pour into the individual bowls. Let them cool down first. Cover and refrigerate.
Garnish the muhallebi with strawberry slices and serve.
Makes 6 - 8 servings.
