Moufataka is rice pudding with tahini & turmeric. It is a recipe from my husband’s family. It is a very rich, tasteful and colourful pudding.
1 cup Ground Riceor Pudding Rice
2 cup Sugar
3 cup Water (if using pudding rice add 1 cup water)
1 cup Tahini
1 tbsp Turmeric
Handfullof Pine Nuts (optional)
Put water, rice and turmeric in saucepan on the hob until the rice is cooked (This recipe is made with pudding rice but I prefer to use ground rice as it is easily cooked). Add tahini and sugar. Lower the heat under saucepan. Stir continuously till the mixture start bubbling gently. The mixture becomes thick, creamy and the tahini oil starts coming up to the surface. It might take up to 40-50 min... Pour in serving plate & sprinkle the pine nuts on top. Let it cool at room temperature.
