Custard with Cardamom Rose Water

A traditional custard in The United Arab Emirates - a holiday favorite.



  1. Put milk, sugar and cardamom into a saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat.
  2. Mix the custard powder with a little water to make a smooth thin paste. Gradually stir it into the milk mixture, whisking constantly. Continue stirring until the custard is smooth.
  3. Remove from heat and add rose water. Return to the stove and place over a very low heat a few minutes.
  4. Pour into custard dishes, and garnish with pistachios.
  5. Chill.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.
