Rose Petal Pound Cake

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
hello from cairo, yes this cake is verry authentic, however, rose water is neither sweet nor coloured, just verry delicatly flavoured,rose syrup is sweet and coloured, and rose essence is a concentrated version of rose water of which only a few drops are required for beautiful results, keep that in mind next time u go to a middle eastern grocery

Easy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
rice pudding is a typical desert in Egypt, my country, however none of the recipes i found on this wonderful site say how to do it the oriental way which is so easy. all u have to do is rince 1/4 of a cup of rice in cold water , keep rincing changing the water until clear. on the stove, combine rice with 4 cups of milk, and the amount of sugar that you judge appropriate, i usually use 1/4 of a cup, and a tsp of vanilla extact. simmer on low heat until the rice is coocked, then ad 1tbsp of cornflour or any other thickning agent used in the us, i dont know what is usually used,the cornflour should be previously dilueted in 5 tbs of milk so as to avoid clumping. once the cornflour is added, bring to a boil stirring until the mixture thickens and ad 2 tbs of rose water or orange blossom water, reduce quantity to a few drops if using rose essence. laddle into individual serving bowl. when cool, sprinkle with ground cinamon, grated coconut, raisins , ground almonds.... this is a typical egyptian rice pudding usually eaten during celebrations.
