Meghli (Flavored Rice Pudding) Recipe

Meghli (Flavored Rice Pudding)

Meghli is a kind of sweet traditionally prepared to celebrate a new born baby in the family. The word “Meghli” means boiled, probably named such because it is boiled for a very long time. It is said to be very good for the baby and mother especially during breast feeding as it supposedly promotes breast milk production. In some villages, they make it on Christmas to celebrate the birth of Jesus. It has a refreshing taste of cinnamon and with coconut added on top, is a perfect treat to cool you off in the summer heat.


1 cup of rice powder
7 cups water
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon ground caraway
2 cups sugar
for decoration: almond, pistachios, whole nut, shredded coconut, pine seeds and raisins


- In a pot, mix the rice powder with cinnamon, caraway then the water. Mix and keep stirring until it boils

- When it starts boiling, add the sugar and continue stirring until the mixture thickens
Pour in small individual bowls and allow to cool

- Cover each bowl with cling film and place in the fridge

- When serving, decorate each bowl with shredded coconut, bleached and halved almonds, whole nuts, pistachios, pine seeds and raisins (according to your preference; my son likes it with just some shredded coconut)
