Meghli, a tradiotional arabic, vegan, gluten free, desert to help milk production for breastfeeding moms

My Mother-in-Law fool proof Meghli recipe

Two months ago I gave birth to the sweetest baby boy Faisal and have been snaking away on this mughli ever since

Meghli, Mughli, mghli however you want to pronounce it; is a pudding made with rice powder and a whole bunch of spices and some yummy toppings to enhance milk production for breast feeding… not only is it the perfect meal to bring when visiting someone who just had a newborn,  its also an excellent vegan dessert that is gluten free

Heres Aunti Nada’s recipes for your to follow. she changed it from the original but this one works every time and like all arabic dishes you’ll have plenty left for visitors to share

9 Cups cold Water

1 1/2 Cup sugar

1 Cup rice powder

1 TBSPN Caraway powder

1 TBSPN Anise

1 TBSPN Cinnamon

1/4 tspn Ginger

1/4 tspns Arabic mixed spice

divide the 9 cups so that you have one cup of water for the spices and the rest of the 8cups for your rice powder

In a small pot boil 1 cup of water with all your spices, in the second pot add the rice powder to the 8cups and make sure the water is cold then slowly start stirring on a low heat and when it starts getting warmer add the sugar and keep stirring followed by the spice mixture as you stir. Once it starts to thicken take off the heat and pour into bowls; now heres the best part! The toppings.

You can top this with your choice of shredded coconut, peeled almond and pistachio and pine nuts presoaked in water  and raisins ( I personally prefer it without)

like any pudding you can eat it warm as soon as its ready or leave in the fridge to cool. But always make sure to add the toppings only before serving

note: I used to eat heaps of this! so to make it healthier you can put less sugar and add the rice flour instead)
