Salep – a la Ansam518

A couple of weeks back, I posted this Salep (sa7lab – سحلب) recipe on my Facebook Group, Ansam’s Kitchen

Makes up to 8 cups (small coffee cups)

Ingredients:
**********
*4 Cups of Milk
*4 Tbs Cornstarch
*4 Tbs Sugar
*1 Tsp Cardamom
*2 Tbs Rosewater
*4 Pcs Grounded Mastic (optional)
*2 Tsp Vanilla (optional)
*Cinnamon, Grounded Pistachio, and Sliced Almonds for Granish

Method:
*******
*Heat 3 cups of milk, add sugar, mastic, and cardamom – stir
*On the side, mix the cornstarch with the remaining cup of milk (cold) well
*When the milk on the stove start heating up (before boiling), add the milk and cornstarch mix to it – stir in well
*Keep stirring slowly and non stop till it starts boiling – lower the heat and keep stirring. You will feel the texture getting thicker (around 2-3 mins)
*Take it off the stove and pour it into your cups. Let it stand for about 20-30 seconds before you sprinkle it with shredded almonds, ground pistachio, and cinnamon
*Serve it hot/warm

Enjoy 😉
