Madlouaha , Layali lobnan (ليالي لبنان )or Lebanese nights, are all names for one of my favorite refreshing, desserts. Lebanese nights is basically a cold semolina pudding with an orange blossom syrup and pistachio fruit topping. This dessert is a snap to make, can be prepared ahead of time, makes for a wonderful and exotic way to end a meal with your family or when you are entertaining.
It is my pleasure to be a guest over at Minnie’s blog. She is heading home for a visit and I was more than happy to help out by being a guest at her wonderful blog. Minnie is very passionate about having a lively home atmosphere, and she loves to share her passion. She shares DIY ideas around the house, mouth-watering recipes, Housekeeping tips, all in her wonderful space called the thelady8home!
Minnie asked for a middle eastern recipe and I thought Madlouah would be a great choice.I love Madlouah because it is quick, easy, can be made ahead of time if you have guests, it is also versatile: you can top it with any seasonal fruit or change up the syrup. Use spice or cinnamon infused syrup or you can use fruit or chocolate syrups.
Taking a bite of madlouah gives you a combination of the velvety pudding with the coconut adding an interesting texture and flavor. A hint of mastic sets this pudding apart from anything you have ever tried. Next comes the richness of the heavy cream, the nuttiness of the pistachios and the perfect finish, refreshing fruit slices. All in one amazing bite
