Milk Pudding with Meringue
(Tez Pişti / Bezeli Muhallebi - Marmara Region)
2 + 1/3 cups milk
2/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp rice flour
2 tbsp corn starch
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 extra-large egg yolk
1 extra-large egg white
Pinch of salt
First beat the egg white with salt until stiff.
Mix 1/3 cup of milk with the rice flour, corn starch, and egg yolk in a medium-sized pot. Then slowly add 2 cups of milk, sugar and vanilla extract while stirring. Cook while stirring constantly with the little egg beater at medium-high heat.
Take it off the stove when it gets thick. Pour 3/4 of the pudding into the 4 individual oven proof bowls equally. Let the 1/4 pudding calm down a little bit. Then combine it with the beaten egg white using a spoon. Cover the puddings equaly with this mixture.
Arrange the bowl on an oven tray. Set the oven to broil (grill), place the tray on middle rack. Keep until the top is light golden colour.
Let it cool down first. Then chill in the refrigerator. It is recommendable to chill it overnight.
Makes 4 servings.
