Ramadan Special #24

Haute Arabia Tip: Sticking to one kind of food at Iftar? This may prevent your body from having enough nutrients! Instead vary your food choices in order to take in all the nutrients that your body needs for its proper function.

Haute Arabia Recipe: Halawat El-Jibn Bil-Kishta

  • 1 tin NESTLÉ® Sweetened Condensed Milk or 397 g
  • ¾ cup corn flour or 90 g

  1. Soak cheese in room temperature water for 4 hours to remove the salt (change water every 1 hour) then drain.
  2. Place NESTLÉ® Sweetened Condensed Milk , water and corn flour in a large saucepan, bring to boil with constant stirring until sauce thickens. Add blossom water and stir. Keep aside to cool into a room temperature.
  3. Place the cheese in a bowl over boiling water and stir until cheese is melted. Add semolina and stir for 5-6 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle 4 tablespoons of hot sugar syrup over the working table and place over the hot cheese dough, then put another 4 tablespoons of hot sugar syrup on top and roll the dough using a rolling pin to have a thin layer then cut into squares with 7cm length.
