The pudding from which the maker of milk puddings, the muhallebici, gets his name. It is the classic milk pudding, and can be made plain, sprinkled with icing sugar, flavoured with rose-water, cardamom, chocolate or vanilla, or altered in texture by adding mastika. On special occasions the pudding is set in a mould and cut into dainty pieces, which are floated in rose-water and served in a frosted dessert glass. This recipe combines the tastes of rose-water and mastika.
