Sahlab (Middle Eastern Milk Pudding)
Sahlab is a Middle Eastern milk pudding thickened with cornstarch or arrowroot powder. It is warm, rich, floral, and toasty.
Combine milk, cornstarch, sugar, rose water, and vanilla extract in a saucepan and beat with a whisk over medium heat. Bring to boil and let the mixture boil for 2 minutes while stirring (or until thick and creamy).
Serve hot in mugs and top with a pinch of cinnamon, shredded coconut, and pistachios on each serving.
